Poem Title:  Love Come And Gone

Poem Category:  Love Poems

Poet:  Georgia Douglas Johnson

Poet Biography: 
Georgia Douglas Johnson (1880-1966) was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1880. With her publication of 'The Heart of a Woman' in 1918, she became one of the most widely known African-American female poets.



Poem: 
Consider me a memory, a dream that passed away;
Or yet a flower that has blown and shattered in a day;
For passion sleeps, alas,
and keeps no vigil with the years
And wakens to no conjuring of orisons or tears.
Consider me a melody that served its simple turn,
Or but the residue of fire that settles in the urn,
For love defies pure reasoning and undeterred flows
Within, without the vassal heart
