Poetry Friday: Langston Hughes’ Dreams

Posted on January 12, 2007. Filed under: Poetry Fridays |

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, a poem from Langston Hughes–out of my favorite kid lit poetry anthology EVER (Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle…And Other Modern Verse):

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.
