Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar


Song (My heart to thy heart)


    My heart to thy heart,
      My hand to thine;
    My lip to thy lips,
      Kisses are wine
  Brewed for the lover in sunshine and shade;
  Let me drink deep, then, my African maid.

    Lily to lily,
      Rose unto rose;
    My love to thy love
      Tenderly grows.
  Rend not the oak and the ivy in twain,
  Nor the swart maid from her swarthier swain.



Paul Laurence Dunbar
