Ethiopia Saluting the Colors


“…Me master years a hundred since from my parents sunder’d,
A little child, they caught me as the savage beast is caught,
Then hither me across the sea the cruel slaver brought…”

Walt Whitman
817. Ethiopia Saluting the Colors
(Excerpt)

 
 

Arthur Rimbaud in Abyssinia (as Ethiopia was known then), 1883
