Poem “To Satch” by Samuel Allen

0 Posted by - December 21, 2017 - Black History, BLACK MEN, LATEST POSTS

Samuel Allen (aka Paul Vesey) is a well-known attorney and poet. Allen was born in Columbus, Ohio on December 9, 1917. His father was a clergyman. He attended Fisk University where he studied with James Weldon Johnson.

After receiving his degree from Fisk in 1938, Allen went on to study law at Harvard where he received his law degree in 1941. He later did graduate work at the the New School for Social Research (1947-48) and the Sorbonne in Paris (1949-50). Allen’s first published book of poems appeared in Germany—Elfenbeinzahne/Ivory Tusks—a bilingual edition with translations by Janheinz Jahn, in 1956 under the pseudonym Paul Vesey (used in his early work).

Allen was Deputy Assistant District Attorney in New York City from 1946 to 1947, a civilian attorney with the U.S. Armed Forces in Europe (1951-55), and in private practice in New York from 1956 to 1958. He also taught law at Texas Southern University.

In “To Satch,” Allen writes his praise poem to the great Negro League baseball player Satchel Paige.

To Satch

by Samuel Allen

Sometimes I feel like I will never stop
Just go on forever
Till one fine mornin
I’m gonna reach up and grab me a handfulla stars
Swing out my long lean leg
And whip three hot strikes burnin down the heavens
And look over a God and say
How about that!!!!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
