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

Georgia Douglas Johnson, "Lethe" (1926)

Awarded Honorable Mention--Opportunity Contest

I do not ask for love,--ah! no,
   Nor friendship's happiness,
These were relinquished long ago
   I search for something less.

I seek a little, tranquil bark
   In which to drift at ease
Awhile, and then quite silently
   To sink in quiet seas. 

Published in Opportunity, July 1926
