    I dont mean to offend anybody, but I don't like this poem at all. Yes, the meaning behind it is slightly inspiring. The words themselves, however, are too simple and childish. The rhyming sounds forced and I'm certain my 11 year old sister could have thought up this poem. not to say I don't like Langston Hughes; some of his poems are good. But this is not one of them.

    Hi, I had to analyze this song in my English studies
    any way I had composed the poem
    Love and peace

    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

    A dream is vital to have in life...
    We should always have one or we have nothing to work for
    I truly love this poem (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
