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

Lucian Watkins, "Greatness" (1916)

We call him great for whom men strong and sure,
Charged with the leaping lightning of his will,
Crush mountains, shatter worlds and mold them o'er,
But he who rules himself is greater still. 

Published in The Crisis, July 1916
