Thunder blossoms gorgeously above our heads,Great, hollow, bell-like flowers,Rumbling in the wind,Stretching clappers to strike our ears . . .Full-lipped flowersBitten by the sunBleeding rainDripping rain like golden honey—And the sweet earth flying from the thunder.By: Jean Toomer

Quest

The phantom happiness I sought O’er every crag and moor;I paused at every postern gate, O’er every crag and moor;I paused at every postern gate, And knocked at every doorIn vain I searched the land and sea, E’en to the inmost core,The curtains of eternal night Descend—my search is o’er.By: Geaorgia Doughglas Johnson
