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

Gertrude P. McBrown, "He Made Me Sing" (1927)

God knew I'd struggled lone and long,
He heard me crying in the night;
He knew I was not strong
Enough to carry out the fight,
So he drew me from the noisy throng;
And breathed into my soul a song."
