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

Helene Johnson, "Love in Midsummer" (1926)

Ah love
Is Like a throbbing wind,
A lullaby all crooning,
Ah love
Is like a summer sea's soft breast.
Ah love's 
A sobbing violin
That naive night is tuning,
Ah love
Is down from off the white moon's nest.
