 | Quotes (1) |
 No more for you the city's thorny ways, 
The ugly corners of the Negro belt; 
The miseries and pains of these harsh days 
By you will never, never again be felt.
No more, if still you wander, will you meet With nights of unabating bitterness; They cannot reach you in your safe retreat, The city's hate, the city's prejudice! 'Twas sudden--but your menial task is done, The dawn now breaks on you, the dark is over, The sea is crossed, the longed-for port is won; Farewell, oh, fare you well! my friend and lover.
