Two Steel Drums

Poem By William H. Alford

Jubilee songs days
sundown songs nights
a symphony of broken rhymes
sweet as heaven's glory; If too heavy the load
songs pierced the mornings;
when sun draped evenings
whispered songs continued. Dark nights without hope
prayers could be heard
take us over
into camp-ground Take us over
into camp-ground

valleys brown and gold
brilliant blue skies

brings nectar
