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

Edward S. Silvera, "White Vanity" (1926)

The moon is laughing at the sky;
The pale white moon derides the black-faced sky:
You should not be so bold, vain moon,
Your song would be a listless tune
Did not its strains come echoing back
From off the sky so dark, so black.
