    Hello,

    In Kath Walker poem A Song Of Hope, I'm not so sure about "sneer dismay".

    Here is the context:

    ...
    When none defame us
    No restriction tame us
    Nor colour shame us
    Nor sneer dismay

    Does that mean that when people sneer at us, we will no longer be dismayed ?


    Thank you,

    A.
