    Poem for Langston Hughes

    Thunder is seldom so soft as when his sounds are spoken.
    That bird climbs on to life- to life! Its wings have never broken.

    Those wings will take it to a place where crystal stairs have passed.
    That barren field of frozen snow will flourish with dreams at last.

    Hold fast!
    Hold fast.!

    Langston was a true poet. His poetry was a denial of everything he'd been told about himself and his people, and the truest expression of spirit that I've ever read.

Best Poem of Langston Hughes

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Read the full of Dreams

Life Is Fine

I went down to the river,
I set down on the bank.
I tried to think but couldn't,
So I jumped in and sank.

I came up once and hollered!
I came up twice and cried!
If that water hadn't a-been so cold
I might've sunk and died.
