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

Georgia Douglas Johnson, "Utopia" (1922)


God grant you wider vision, clearer skies, my son,
With morning’s rosy kisses on your brow;
May your wild yearnings know repose,
And storm-clouds break to smiles
As you sweep on with spreading wings
Unto a waiting sunset!
