    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

    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.

Best Poem of Langston Hughes

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.

Life Is Fine

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 cold
I might've sunk and died.
