Poem


Why do the bards of black folk
Sing grief brushed over with gladness?
Because God sculptured the soul of the race
In a moment of wistful sadness.


Why do the bards of black folk
Sing joy that follows all sorrow?
God's tool when He sculptured the soul of the race
Was "The Hope of the Unborn Morrow."

Written by Gladys May Casely-Hayford (1904-1950)
