Excerpt: ...sunbeams glare Through the hot and misty air, --Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone, From Virginia's 2 hills and waters, --Woe is me, my stolen daughters Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone. There no mother's eye is near them, There no mother's ear can hear them; Never, when the torturing lash Seams their back with many a gash, Shall a mother's kindness bless them, Or a mother's arms caress them. Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the ricg-swamp dank and lone, From Virginia's hills and waters, --Woe is me, my stolen daughters Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone. Oh, when weary, sad and slow, From the fields at night they go, Faint with toil and racked with pain, To their cheerless homes again, There no brother's voice shall greet them, --There no father's welcome meet them. Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone, From Virginia's hills and waters, --Woe is me, my stolen daughters Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone, From the tree whose shadow lay On their childhood's place of play, --From the cool spring where they drank, --Rock, and hill, and rivulet bank, --From the solemn house of prayer And the holy counsels there, --Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone, From Virginia's hills and waters, --Woe is me, my stolen daughters I Gone, gone, --sold and gone To the rice-swamp dank and lone. Toiling through the weary day, And at night the spoiler's prey, Oh that they had earlier died, Sleeping calmly, side by side, Where the tyrant's power is o'er, And the fetter3 galls no more Gone, gone, --sold and gone, To the rice-swamp dank and lone, From Virginia's hills and waters, --Woe is me, my stolen daughters Gone, ...
