Morning

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,
A sighing, soothing, laughing tease,
Until the rose says "Kiss me, please,"
'Tis morning, 'tis morning.

With staff in hand and careless-free,
The wanderer fares right jauntily,
For towns and houses are, thinks he,
For scorning, for scorning.
My soul is swift upon the wing,
And in its deeps a song I bring;
Come, Love, and we together sing,
"'Tis morning, 'tis morning."

    Beautiful description. Dunbar was also known for being able to write beautiful poetry using what
    was known as 'Negro dialect'. He gave a voice to those who had been totally ignored.

  • Naomi (fellowtuber123) Hamilton (9/23/2009 12:11:00 PM)

    I personally love this morning. And it's portrayed so beautifully in this poem. It's so rythmic too.

  • Joseph Poewhit (9/23/2009 7:27:00 AM)

    Words bring hope, of a new dawning to life and a new freedom of life.

  • Kevin Straw (9/23/2009 5:39:00 AM)

    The wind hides in the trees till the rose says kiss me please? Mental and emotional mush.

  • Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black (9/23/2008 8:29:00 PM)
