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

Mae V. Cowdery, "Nameless" (1928)


How like the restless beating
Of our hearts
Is the surge of the sea;
How like the tumult
Of our souls
Is the lashing of the storm;
How like the yearning
In our song
Is the wind,
How like a prayer
Is night.
