    I find Hughes' words very righteous because without dreams life is nonsense.No dreams implies no hope and imbitions in life.Wen we dream, we taste hope in life.So, let's have more dreams in life full of hope and prosperity.

    Your poem dream is very short, but it tell us something very true in our life.In some sense, the dream is more ture and more important than the reality, because it can bring the happiness to us.Compared with the pleasure the outside material gives us, this kind of spirit happiness is more deeper and more longer.This reminds me one of poem written by Yeats.In the poem, the king want to escape the wealth belonging to him, and find a very thin dreamer.The king complained that everything belongs to him in his country but ironically he himself did not belong to himself.He lacked the real life in the inner heart.And the thin and poor dreamer gives him some bags of dreams, and the king begin to feel content then.This story told us the power of dream.They are fragile and false in the appearance, but they are also the most powerful and true in our life.So we can not live without dream.Socrates once said, the unexamined life is not worth living.And we can also say, the life without dream is not worth living.

    Simple things are always the most pleasant.I read this poem many times and I think it is written beautifully because we seldom come across a poem that marries simplicity in form with depth in meaning. It is the kind of poems that speak to the minds and tingle the hearts with a mild tone of sorrow.

    Beautiful. Simply beautiful. No one can ever change the words in this poem because it is simply AHMZNG♥

    'Refugee in America' has such a resonant quality. It's one of my favorites.

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me-
That is my dream!
