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

Lucian B. Watkins, "Paul Laurence Dunbar--Poet" (1917)

God gave his struggling soul a Dream
   That in its birth,
A Beauty and a Joy Supreme
   Might bless the earth.
He dreamed. Along the Heavenward way 
   Of Love Divine
Men saw the Light and, day by day,
   Knelt at the shrine.
