Toomer, J. (n.d.). Song of the Son. Retrieved from


Excerpt: POUR O pour that parting soul in song, // O pour it in the sawdust glow of night, // Into the velvet pine-smoke air to-night, // And let the valley carry it along. // And let the valley carry it along. // O land and soil, red soil and sweet-gum tree, // So scant of grass, so profligate of pines, // Now just before an epoch's sun declines // Thy son, in time, I have returned to thee, // Thy son, I have in time returned to thee. // In time, for though the sun is setting on // A song-lit race of slaves, it has not set; // Though late, O soil, it is not too late yet // To catch thy plaintive soul, leaving, soon gone, // Leaving, to catch thy plaintive soul soon gone.
