In honor of Poetry Month, a short piece by Paul Laurence Dunbar that speaks perfectly to friendship:


‘T is better to sit here beside the sea,
Here on the spray-kissed beach,
In silence, that between such friends as we
Is full of deepest speech.

A prolific black writer from Dayton, Ohio, Dunbar died at the age of 33 from tuberculosis. Read more about Dunbar at The Poetry Foundation, at Biography, and at Wright State University.

The above poem was taken from my copy of Selected Poems, purchased at one of the National Park Service visitor centers in the Dayton area.

      Ah, but if only I could take the pictures I truly saw. The eye is the best camera in the world.

      Thank you for the kind words. I’ve “followed” your blog, and look forward to reading more about your ventures. 🙂
