    Sultry Summer's Evening

    A frail…old Negro lady
    …Born…in Lincoln's day
    Who knew the taste of freedom
    Only… when… she passed …away

    Imprisoned… by the hatred
    Which gnawed… within her soul
    Agony written upon her face
    … From the story…that she told

    Of a sultry......summer’s evening
    She was but…a child…back when
    Her sister…was dragged away…in the dark
    …By a group of sullen men

    On horseback…silhouetted
    Against…a glazed…moonlight
    …And White folk...until her dying day
    Reminded her…of…the night

    When the cabin…in the clearing
    Where the slaves called home
    Was violated and desecrated
    As she stood there…all alone

    In the yard…and wept
    …And silently…prayed
    A vigil…with a purpose
    Through the night…she stayed

    Returning late…the next morning
    ……Of a sweltering day
    They heaved a box…where she stood
    … Without a word…rode away

    ...Though...they disappeared...forever...
    Yet…their faces plagued her mind
    …There…beside…her sister’s body…
    Lying in the box…
    .................................They made
    ...................................................................Of pine


    Dedicated to my paternal grandmother, Sallie Virgie Earley 1855 -1948.....who was born into 'Slavery'...during...the 'American Holocaust, ' witnessed this moment...as a young child, and was consumed with a bitter hatred as a result of the experience. 'Sultry Summer's Evening' is a tribute to her memory....with the prayer...that she has...in death...found that measure of peace...which was so tragically elusive....during her sojourn.....on this earth. read more »

    The Stanzas Of My Mind

    When stars fell cold
    Like chunks of ice out of a fatal sky,
    We memorized the hoar frost on gray roofs
    And slanted thoughts to fit time's westward curve. read more »

    Chicago

    Men said at vespers: 'All is well!'
    In one wild night the city fell;
    Fell shrines of prayer and marts of gain
    Before the fiery hurricane. read more »

    A Sweltering Day In Australia

    The Bombola faints in the hot Bowral tree,
    Where fierce Mullengudgery's smothering fires
    Far from the breezes of Coolgardie

    The Victim

    Some one mentioned the 'Holocaust' the old Jewish man said 'no'
    Such word i do not wish to hear that happened years ago
    Then he slowly folded up his sleeve and numbers etched in blue
