African American Poetry (1870-1926): A Digital Anthology

Langston Hughes, "Prayer Meeting" (1923)

Glory! Hallelujah!
The dawn's a-comin'!
Glory! Hallelujah!
The dawn's a-comin'!
A black old woman croons in the amen-corner of the Ebecaneezer Baptist Church.
A black old woman croons —
The dawn's a-comin'!
