    croppers rotting shacks
    with famine, terror, flood, and plague near by;
    where sentiment and hatred still held sway
    and only bitter land was washed away.

    With veins rolling roughly over quick hands
    They have many clean words to say.

    An evil moon bleeds drops of death.
    The earth burns brown.
    Grass shrivels and dries to a yellowish mass.
    Earth wears a dun-colored dress
    like an old woman wooing the sun to be her lover,
    be her sweetheart and her husband bound in one.
    —Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)
