Negro Poems, Melodies
I saw the old plantation
A home to him no more, A cabin small and homely
And children round the door; And flowers wreathing roses
And breathing sweets around, And this was down in Georgia
And Missus walking around.
I know he was a bondman,
His flesh still lacked the pound, For he was murmuring Georgia
And Missus walking round; He whistled and he shuffledó
Some joy was breaking ground, Or why did he mention Georgia?
And Missus walking round.
