222              NEGRO DIALECT VERSES
Dey even mosied off wid him, An' lef me nary one.
Dem chillun's scattered ever'whar,
An' dunno who dey is, But dey will know me ovah dar
When jedgment's sun is riz.
I may 'pear monst'ous cross an' ill, But Heaven knows I b'ar
No spite, er hate, er 'vengeful will To block my way up dar.
