Earl Bigelow Brown, "A Bridge" (1928)

A Bridge
(To the Utica Jubilee Singers)
By Eart BiceLow Brown

You build a slender shining bridge,
   Mystically strong,
Across the cleft of sorrows; it’s
   A silver bridge of song.

It spans the space of memories.
   It meets the throne of grace,—
It arches like a magic road
   Above the rift of race.
