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

Lucian Watkins, "Two Points of View" (1916)

From this low lying valley; Oh, how sweet
And cool and calm and great is life, I ween,
There on yon mountain-throne–that sun-gold crest!
From this uplifted, mighty mountain-seat:
How bright and still and warm and soft and green
Seems yon low lilly-valve of peace and rest!
