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

Georgia Douglas Johnson, "Your Voice Keeps Ringing Down the Day" (1924)

Your Voice Keeps Ringing Down the Day

Your voice keeps ringing down the day
In accents soft and mild
With which you have beguiled
And wooed me as a child.
Your presence bounds me every way
And thrills me in its fold
With phantom hands that hold
Like cherished chains of gold.
