    Paul Laurence Dunbar was yet another of the poets that Langston Hughes read and studied. The hool in this poem was well repeated by us Afican-American boys.
    Men long before my day 'came a calling' on a woman. the speaker in this poems
    is taking his lady home for the evening. looking forward in continuing the night.
    Jump back, honey jump back.
