Warm Thoughts: Poems From St. Thomas Virgin Islands
Press On: Truthful Insights Into The Lives We Live
"There is a poem for every thought which can provide great insights into the lives we live. A poem is neutral and takes sides with no one... it's for you to embrace and enjoy. There is a poem for everyone!"
Frank Clay, Jr.
The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.
The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.
Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.
The night has many
Sounds and lights
So are the ways of my people now.
The stars can be
Seen near and far
So developed now are the minds of my people.
Beautiful always is the sun
That rises in front of a deep blue sky
Or somewhere above the deep blue oceans of the vivid past.
Beautiful always are the hearts and souls of my people now...
When you reflect on these things
Look at my people now and smile.
Press On... Truthful Insights Into The Lives We Live!
Written in response and dedication to Frank Clay's favorite author Langston Hughes.
