i'm gonna have to disagree with you on this one...it may be about slaves,
however i think its just about through darkness(evil) and gloom, the
walkers will always be able to prevail because they have something to look
forward too during the nights,day.
the mornings may represent faith, and hope, and that is what helps them to
be strong.

Don't you posters get it? This poem is about slaves knowing about sunrise
and sunset because of working in the fields. It's neither cool, sweet, or
pleasant for them to rise at sunrise.

This one sure "spoke to my condition" as the Quakers say. I have been
walking with the sunrise almost every morning for years...It supports me
through the tough times of family disfunction, middle age, career loss, and
a persistent depressive disorder. Life is All!
