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

Gertrude P. McBrown, "Twin Heavens" (1927)

Twin Heavens

An endless stretch of blue
Flecked with wee silver lights,
A luminous, laughing ball
Brightening the inky nights.
Little brown babies tucked
Away in fleecy beds
While fleeting, fairy dreams
Dance through their drowsy heads.
