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

W.E.B. Du Bois, "Unrest" (1920)

This poem originally appeared in The Crisis in March 1920

O God!
Dip down Thy Hands into the flame ways of Thy Heavens;
Splash back the foaming clouds,
Strain out Thy Suns,
And let the stars drip through,
Upon the panting blindness of our ears.
