Isabel Wilkerson
“...they speak like melted butter and their children speak like footsteps on pavement...”
Isabel Wilkerson, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America's Great Migration

“He Said...

Your garden at dusk
Is the soul of love
Blurred in its beauty
And softly caressing;
I, gently daring
This sweetest confessing,
Say your garden at dusk
Is your soul, My Love.”
Anne Spencer
