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.
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.
i love the poem...about civil war
I love the line from the LTAB poem, My ego is Langston 'Huge'
Langston Hughs in my opinion was the OG of poetry. I am influenced by his genius at sharingpoetry.com.
He wrote this poem in 1926.
the most iconic man of all time

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 coldI might've sunk and died.
