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

Effie Lee Newsome, "Exodus" (1925)

Rank fennel and broom
Grow wanly beside
The cottage and room
We once occupied,
But sold for the snows!

The dahoon berry weeps in blood,
I know,
Watched by the crow--
I've seen both grow
In those weird wastes of Dixie!
