    • Weaving, 1869 "I weave, and weave, the livelong day: The woof is strong, the warp is good: I weave, to be my mothers stay; I weave, to win my daily food : But ever as I weave," saith she, " The world of women haunteth me. ...... My sisters toil, with foreheads black ; And water with their blood this root, Whereof we gather bounteous fruit. " I think of women sad and poor ; Women who walk in garments soiled : Their shame, their sorrow, I endure ; By their defect my hope is foiled : The blot they bear is on my name ; Who sins, and I am not to blame ? " And how much of your wrong is mine, Dark women slaving at the South ? Of your stolen grapes I quaff the wine ; The bread you starve for fills my mouth : The beam unwinds, but every threadLucy Larcom, artist unknown, engraving, nd, New With blood of strangled souls is red.York Public Library
