Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Deep in the Quiet Wood


When buffeted and beaten by life's storms,
When by the bitter cares of
The world, for me, and all the world can hold
Is circled by your arms; for me there lies,
Within the lights and shadows of your eyes,
The only beauty that is never old.

Written by James Weldon Johnson (1871-1938)
