Paul Laurence Dunbar

(1872-1906 / Ohio / United States)

Old - Poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar

I have seen peoples come and go
Alike the Ocean'd ebb and flow;
I have seen kingdoms rise and fall
Like springtime shadows on a wall.
I have seen houses rendered great
That grew from life's debased estate,
And all, all, all is change I see,
So, dearest God, take me, take me.
