Georgia Dusk Analysis



Author: poem of Jean Toomer Type: poem Views: 47

The sky, lazily disdaining to pursue

   The setting sun, too indolent to hold

   A lengthened tournament for flashing gold,

Passively darkens for night's barbecue,



A feast of moon and men and barking hounds,

   An orgy for some genius of the South

   With blood-hot eyes and cane-lipped scented mouth,

Surprised in making folk-songs from soul sounds.



The sawmill blows its whistle, buzz-saws stop,

   And silence breaks the bud of knoll and hill,

   Soft settling pollen where plowed lands fulfill

Their early promise of a bumper crop.



Smoke from the pyramidal sawdust pile

   Curls up, blue ghosts of trees, tarrying low

   Where only chips and stumps are left to show

The solid proof of former domicile.



Meanwhile, the men, with vestiges of pomp,

   Race memories of king and caravan,

   High-priests, an ostrich, and a juju-man,

Go singing through the footpaths of the swamp.



Their voices rise . . the pine trees are guitars,

   Strumming, pine-needles fall like sheets of rain . .

   Their voices rise . . the chorus of the cane

Is caroling a vesper to the stars . .



O singers, resinous and soft your songs

   Above the sarcred whisper of the pines,

   Give virgin lips to cornfield concubines,

Bring dreams of Christ to dusky cane-lipped throngs.
