THE HEART OF A WOMAN, by         Recitation     Poet's Biography
First Line: The heart of a woman goes forth with the dawn
Last Line: While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): African Americans - Women; Women


The heart of a woman goes forth with the dawn,
As a lone bird, soft winging, so restlessly on,
Afar o'er life's turrets and vales does it roam
In the wake of those echoes the heart calls home.

The heart of a woman falls back with the night,
And enters some alien cage in its plight,
And tries to forget it has dreamed of the stars
While it breaks, breaks, breaks on the sheltering bars.
