Both authors centered their works around African Americans, illuminating issues within the communities, and specifically, the family unit, or lack thereof. The play also puts an emphasis on the disintegrating relationships between Troy, his wife Rose, and his son Cory, due to his adulterous relationship with Alberta. Rose then adopted the motherless Raynell, but no longer had any further dealings with Troy as a husband. Rose Maxson is named for a flower, and takes on characteristics of that flower.
I - From Clee to heaven the beacon burns, The shires have seen it plain, From north and south the sign returns And beacons burn again.
To skies that knit their heartstrings right, To fields that bred them brave, The saviours come not home tonight: Themselves they could not save. We pledge in peace by farm and town The Queen they served in war, And fire the beacons up and down The land they perished for.
II Loveliest of trees, the cherry now Is hung with bloom along the bough, And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide. Now, of my three score years and ten, Twenty will not come again, And take from seventy springs a score, It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow.
IX On moonlit heath and lonesome bank The sheep beside me graze; And yon the gallows used to clank Fast by the four cross ways. A careless shepherd once would keep The flocks by moonlight there,  And high amongst the glimmering sheep The dead man stood The mothers of fences and bright air.
They hang us now in Shrewsbury jail: The whistles blow forlorn, And trains all night groan on the rail To men that die at morn. There sleeps in Shrewsbury jail to-night, Or wakes, as may betide, A better lad, if things went right, Than most that sleep outside.
And sharp the link of life will snap, And dead on air will stand Heels that held up as straight a chap As treads upon the land.
XI On your midnight pallet lying, Listen, and undo the door: XII When I watch the living meet, And the moving pageant file Warm and breathing through the street Where I lodge a little while, If the heats of hate and lust In the house of flesh are strong, Let me mind the house of dust Where my sojourn shall be long.
In the nation that is not Nothing stands that stood before; There revenges are forgot, And the hater hates no more; Lovers lying two and two Ask not whom they sleep beside, And the bridegroom all night through Never turns him to the bride. Ah, past the plunge of plummet, In seas I cannot sound, My heart and soul and senses, World without end, are drowned.
His folly has not fellow Beneath the blue of day That gives to man or woman His heart and soul away. Here by the labouring highway With empty hands I stroll: Sea-deep, till doomsday morning, Lie lost my heart and soul. To-day, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town.
Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay, And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. Eyes the shady night has shut Cannot see the record cut, And silence sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears: Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out, Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man.
So set, before the echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup. Here of a Sunday morning My love and I would lie, And see the coloured counties, And hear the larks so high About us in the sky.
The bells would ring to call her In valleys miles away: And I would turn and answer Among the springing thyme, "Oh, peal upon our wedding, And we will hear the chime, And come to church in time. They tolled the one bell only, Groom there was none to see, The mourners followed after, And so to church went she, And would not wait for me.
The bells they sound on Bredon And still the steeples hum. A single redcoat turns his head, He turns and looks at me. I wish one could know them, I wish there were tokens to tell The fortunate fellows that now you can never discern; And then one could talk with them friendly and wish them farewell And watch them depart on the way that they will not return.
More than I, if truth were told, Have stood and sweated hot and cold, And through their reins in ice and fire Fear contended with desire. But from my grave across my brow Plays no wind of healing now, And fire and ice within me fight Beneath the suffocating night.
The blood that warms an English yeoman, The thoughts that hurt him, they were there. There, like the wind through woods in riot, Through him the gale of life blew high; The tree of man was never quiet: To-day the Roman and his trouble Are ashes under Uricon.
Now -- for a breath I tarry Nor yet disperse apart -- Take my hand quick and tell me, What have you in your heart. Sure, sure, if stedfast meaning, If single thought could save, The world might end to-morrow, You should not see the grave. This long and sure-set liking, This boundless will to please, -- Oh, you should live for ever, If there were help in these.
But now, since all is idle, To this lost heart be kind, Ere to a town you journey Where friends are ill to find.
You may be good for something but you are not good for me. Oh, go where you are wanted, for you are not wanted here. I will go where I am wanted, to a lady born and bred Who will dress me free for nothing in a uniform of red; She will not be sick to see me if I only keep it clean: I will go where I am wanted for a soldier of the Queen.Rail Fence quilt pattern designs are perfect for the beginning quilter because you build skills and create a fun quilt to boot!
