I'M NOT AFRAID THE "RACE IS RUNNING DOWN"
By Berton Braley.
Whenever I begin to think
;The race is "running down,"
That mankind's going on the blink
.'In country and in town,
I take a trolley to the beach
: And there, with, roving eye,
Upon that warm and sandy reach
I watch the crowd so bv.
I watch the bathers in the sea, the loafers on the sand,
.... The women tall and strong and free, the big men, deeply tanned,
v I watch them frolic in the spume like boys and girls at play,
And all my former doubt and gloom is swiftly brushed away.
For these are just the folks you meet,
Just Bill and Jim and Sue.
The folks of store and shop and
Who daily come to view;
And so I put my heart at ease,
My racial worries flee,
While stalwart men and girls like
Go down to brave the sea!
