    dreams easy to spell difficult to realise, with Hughes i feel that at least i have something to live for and fight to make it comes true.

    this is really a good poem.It push us to keep dreaming all the time.you want to realize your goal until you succeed; no give up.this poem intoduces the ideal dream that all the human being want to achieve.

    Hello, I think that particular poem is wonderful one.This poem is a sudden truth feeling which is expressed by Langston Hughes without any hisitation.Because it really touches our life and gives us more hopes.

    hi I found this poem really wonderful it gives me hope and power to be ambitious, because dreams are like the breath of human being.We can not live and stay in this life without having dream to atchieve and realise it.Thank you for your advice I will keep it in my mind

    the poem dreams is written by HUGHES.
    It treas great theme.any one cann't alive withought dream. it motive you to realize what your want.the poem is written with simple and clear style.it is world wide message.

    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.

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!
