Hughes makes the world real. We can talk about stratification or xenophobia all we want but we'll never really know how it feels. And I think he bring something to us in his poetry. And I certainly adore that about him
I read Hughes's poem 'Snail' when I feel like noone knows who I am and it makes me feel so much better. I also like his poem 'Little Green Tree' because it makes life seem so much more fun! Thank-you for being so good to me Hughes.
When a man starts out with nothing, When a man starts out with his hands Empty, but clean, When a man starts to build a world, He starts first with himself And the faith that is in his heart- The strength there, The will there to build.
