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

Inez M. Richardson, "Exile" (1924)


My lonely heart and I,
Waited for Spring,
By the side of the road,
And Spring passed by.
We could not share her loveliness,
The lilt of her song, blue sky,
Exiled in our wilderness,
My lonely heart and I.
