African American Poetry (1870-1927): A Digital Anthology

Joseph S. Cotter, Jr. "An April Day" (1927)

AN APRIL DAY

On such a day as this I think,
On such a day as this,
When earth and sky and nature's whole
Are clad in April's bliss;

And balmy zephyrs gently waft
Upon your cheek a kiss;
Sufficient is it just to live
On such a day as this.
