African American Poetry (1870-1928): A Digital Anthology

Charles Bertram Johnson, "True Wealth" (1924)

What though no castles grand
In somber grandeur stand
Entitled with my name;
What though uncrowned by fame
I sing in humble state;
I don't bemoan my fate:
The April-haunted lea
Is wealth enough for me.
