Paul Laurence Dunbar - A Choice

They please me not-- these solemn songs 
That hint of sermons covered up. 
'T is true the world should heed its wrongs, 
But in a poem let me sup, 
Not simples brewed to cure or ease 
Humanity's confessed disease, 
But the spirit-wine of a singing line, 
Or a dew-drop in a honey cup!
