File1:

I too sing America, I am the darker brother
They send me to eat in the kitchen, when
company comes. But I laugh and eat well, and
grow strong.

Tommorrow, I'll be at the table when the
company comes. Nobody'll dare say to me,
"Eat in the kitchen", then.

Besides, they'll see how beautiful I am
and be ashamed-- I, too, am America.
-Langston Hughes

File2:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,and
sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood.

And looked down one as far as I could
to where it bent in the undergrowth;
then took the other, as just as fair.

And having perhaps the better claim, Because
it was grassy and wanted wear;

Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I
took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

File3:

Fast rode the knight, with Spurs, hot and reeking,
Ever waving an eager sword, "To save my lady"!
Fast rode the knight.

And leaped from saddle to war.
Men of steel flickered and gleamed,
like riot of silver lights, still waved
on a castle wall..

A horse, Blowing, staggering, bloody thing,
Forgotten at foot of castle wall.
A horse, dead at foot of castle wall.

-Stephen Crane
