Women of the Early Harlem Renaissance: African American Women Writers 1900-1922


The peerless boon of innocence,
The first in nature's list
Is fading, ere the rising sun
The world awake has kist.
The early dew upon the grass,
The purity of morn,
The glint that lies in virgin cheek.
Frail cobwebs — of the dawn.
