Valuable Poetry: Dreams by Langston Hughes.

Every Monday, I post valuable poems. But Unfortunately 5 days before I could not able to post. Quite seriously, I felt a bit not okay. I would love to post today. Please read and enjoy.

About the poet: A poet, novelist, fiction writer, and playwright, Langston Hughes is known for his insightful, colorful portrayals of black life in America from the twenties through the sixties and was important in shaping the artistic contributions of the Harlem Renaissance.

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.

One thought on “Valuable Poetry: Dreams by Langston Hughes.

  1. I was reading that poem recently with my students, and then for myself I read Let America Be America Again also by Hughes. It’s as relevant now as the day he wrote it.
