looking for poem

I'm searching for a poem called "The Creation" by James Baldwin to read to my English class. I used to read it in speech contests in the 60's and remember it being very powerful. Thanks, Sandy

I think that the poem you are looking for is not by James Baldwin, but by James Weldon Johnson. It is from a collection called "God's Trombones." You should be able to find it if you look for the right author. If you are unable to fine it, e-mail me, and I will send you a copy. I have taught this and also read it in performance. I love it.
