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

Langston Hughes, "Mexican Market Woman" (1926)

This ancient hag
Who sits upon the ground
Selling her scanty wares
Day in, day round,
Has known high wind-swept mountains,
And the sun has made
Her skin so brown.

Published in The Weary Blues, 1926
