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

Mae V. Cowdery, "Love in These Days" (1928)

Her eyes were hard
And his bitter
As they sat and watched 
The fire fade
From the ashes of their love.
Then they turned 
And saw the naked autumn wind
Shake the bare autumn trees,
And each one thought
As the cold came in--
........"It might have been"........
