Phillis Wheatley (Филлис Уитли)


On Being Brought from Africa to America


'TWAS mercy brought me from my Pagan land,
Tought me benighted soul to understand
That there's a God, that there's a Saviour too:
Once I redemption neither sought nor knew.
Some view our sable race with scornful eye,
"Their colour is a diabolic die."
Remember, Christians, Negros, black Cain,
May be refin'd, and join th' angelic train.

  1. To the University of Cambridge, in New-England
  2. To S.M., a Young African Painter, on Seeing His Works
  3. To a Lady and Her Children
