James Weldon Johnson, ed. (1871–1938).  The Book of American Negro Poetry.  1922.
 
Scintilla
 
William Stanley Braithwaite
 
 
I KISSED a kiss in youth
  Upon a dead man’s brow;
And that was long ago,—
  And I’m a grown man now.
 
It’s lain there in the dust,        5
  Thirty years and more;—
My lips that set a light
  At a dead man’s door.
