W'en I Gits Home
Wadin' In De Crick
Warm Day In Winter, A
Warrior's Prayer, The
We Wear the Mask
What's The Use
When A Feller's Itchin' To Be Spanked
When All Is Done
When De Co'n Pone's Hot
When Dey Listed Colored Soldiers
When Malindy Sings
When Sam'l Sings
When The Old Man Smokes
Whip-Poor-Will And Katy-Did
Why Fades a Dream?
Wind and the Sea, The
Winter's Day, A
With The Lark
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 over-wise.
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.
We smile, but oh great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile,
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!
