Devil's Treat


When I was good I would receive a sweet
I was told the angels had brought me a treat
And when I was bad and not very good
The devil’s treat to me was cake and food
Then when I was sinful I would always get sick
I realized, if the devil gives you a treat, it will be a trick.

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
