SWING LOW, SWEET CHARIOT Swing low, sweet chariot, Coming for to carry me home Swing low, sweet chariot, Coming for to carry me home I looked over Jordan, and I what did I see Coming for to carry me home? A band of angels coming after me Coming for to carry me home If you get there before I do Coming for to carry me home Tell all my friends I coming too Coming for to carry me home I'm sometimes up, I'm sometimes down Coming for to carry me home But still my soul feels heavenly bound Coming for to carry me home

To let my people go WE WEAR THE MASK BY PAUL LAURENCE DUNBAR We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes, This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile, And mouth with myriad subtleties. Why should the world be overwise, In counting all our tears and

sighs? Nay, let them only see us, while We wear the mask. We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries METER Most lines in the poem are in iambic tetrameter. In this metric pattern, a line has four pairs of unstressed and stressed syllables, for a total eight syllables. 1................2................. 3...............4 We WEAR..|..the MASK..|..that GRINS..|..and LIES, 1................2................. 3...............4 It HIDES..|..our CHEEKS..|..and SHADES..|..our EYES, 1................2........ 3.............4 This DEBT..|..we PAY..|..to HU..|..man GUILE; 1...................2................. 3.................4 With TORN..|..and BLEED..|..ing HEARTS..|..we SMILE,

I went to the dances at Chandlerville, And played snap-out at Winchester. One time we changed partners, Driving home in the moonlight of middle June, And then I found Davis. We were married and lived together for seventy years, Enjoying, working, raising the twelve children, Eight of whom we lost Ere I had reached the age of sixty. LUCINDA MATLOCK CONTD I spun, I wove, I kept the house, I nursed the sick, I made the garden, and for holiday

Rambled over the fields where sang the larks, And by Spoon River gathering many a shell, And many a flower and medicinal weed Shouting to the wooded hills, singing to the green valleys. LUCINDA MATLOCK CONTD At ninety-six I had lived enough, that is all, And passed to a sweet repose. What is this I hear of sorrow and weariness, Anger, discontent and drooping hopes?

Degenerate sons and daughters, Life is too strong for you It takes life to love Life. LUCINDA MATLOCK CONTD What is the authors tone? What is the authors message? Is this theme universal? Explain.

Do you think shes right? Justify. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania. Let freedom ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado. Let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of California. But not only that -- let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia. Let freedom ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi -from every mountainside! WORKS CITED Information from http:// www.cummingsstudyguides.net/Guides4/
