    I love this poem and I love Langston Hughes. The brevity of the poem, its conciseness deliver the message powerfully. Had it been longer it might have not had the same impact. (Report) Reply

    This was the first real poem I CARED enough to memorize. As a young teenager it spoke to my soul. As a mother, it becomes my wisdom. As a woman growing older it reminds me to keep dreams alive. (Report) Reply
