James Weldon Johnson, ed. (1871–1938).  The Book of American Negro Poetry.  1922.
 
Supplication
 
Joseph S. Cotter, Jr.
 
 
I AM so tired and weary,
  So tired of the endless fight,
So weary of waiting the dawn
  And finding endless night.
 
That I ask but rest and quiet—        5
  Rest for days that are gone,
And quiet for the little space
  That I must journey on.
