The Negro Speaks of Rivers by Langston Hughes
I've known rivers ancient as the world and older than the
I've known rivers:
flow of human blood in human veins.My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep.
I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young.
I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln
went down to New Orleans, and I've seen its muddy
bosom turn all golden in the sunset.
I've known rivers:Ancient, dusky rivers.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
