Morning


The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again

    My favorite portion of this pretty poem is in the final stanza, where the nameless wanderer eschews the convention and containment of houses and towns. I feel that all the poem was written around this nomadic freedom. (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply

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

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
