by Paul Laurence Dunbar

All de night long twell de moon goes
down,
Lovin’ I set at huh feet,
Den fu’ de long jou’ney back f’om de town,
Ha’d, but de dreams mek it sweet.

All de night long twell de break of de day,
Dreamin’ agin in my sleep,
Mandy comes drivin’ my sorrers away,
Axin’ me, “Wha’ fu’ you weep?”

All de day long twell de sun goes down,
Smilin’, I ben’ to my hoe,
Fu’ dough de weddah git nasty an’ frown,
One place I know I kin go.

Al my life long twell de night has pas’
Let de wo’k come ez it will,
So dat I fin’ you, my honey, at las’,
Somewhaih des ovah de hill.
