African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

B.B. Church, "Africa" (1924)

As gleams the evening star
Upon the brow of night,
When light of day has trailed
Its master's sudden flight,
So shines the motherland--
An emerald at rest,
Amid the sapphire splendor
Of the ocean's surging breast.
