Rating: 3.7

Yet they got a satin box
for his head to lay.

I am moved by sadness when I read 'Night Funeral in Harlem'. Genuine empathy, compassion for the negro boy's funeral.

I think it's really cool how this poem points out that your status in life isn't important, but how many who love you and you love is.
