A Love Song

Author: Paul Dunbar

Ah, love, my love is like a cry in the night,
A long, loud cry to the empty sky,
The cry of a man alone in the desert,
With hands uplifted, with parching lips,
Oh, rescue me, rescue me,
Thy form to mine arms,
The dew of thy lips to my mouth,
Dost thou hear me? — my call thro' the night?

Darling, I hear thee and answer,
Thy fountain am I,
All of the love of my soul will I bring to thee,
All of the pains of my being shall wring to thee,
Deep and forever the song of my loving shall sing to thee,

Ever and ever thro’ day and thro’ night shall I cling to thee.
Hearest thou the answer?
Darling, I come, I come.

Born on June 27, 1872, Paul Laurence Dunbar was one of the first African-American poets to gain national recognition.
This poem depicts an overwhelming need for love, a need that is like that of a person dying of thirst in the desert; the only thing that can save him is the lover for whom this poem is intended to.
