Alternate Author Name(s): Hughes, Langston
Subject(s): African Americans; Negroes; American Blacks

In times of stormy weather
She felt queer pain
That said,
"You'll find rain better
Than shelter from the rain."

Days filled with fiery sunshine
Strange hurt she knew
That made
Her seek the burning sunlight
Rather than the shade.

In months of snowy winter
When cozy houses hold
She'd break
Down doors to wander
Naked through the cold.
