    I really appreciate this poem. It enthralled me with its simple words that carry an amazing meaning. It is like a piece of advice. Whenever I read it a strong energy and motivation invade me. Come on! dream. Dreams are neither expensive nor cheap; they cost nothing. Dream! and when your dream becomes true you will fly in the happiness' air and sink in the pleasure's sea. Simply you will be indeed alive. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem because i already have the conviction that if you have a dream, a realistic one, you can with time and by all means realize it, of course if you really want it to come true. What is life without dreams? It is a hopeless life. If you do not dream, you have no goals and objectives; if you have no goals, you have nothing to realize in your life, and if you have nothing to do in your life, you are like a non-existent or a dead person. You do not want to be considered as being dead? So, start dreaming; IT IS NEVER TOO LATE. (Report) Reply

    The simplicity of the poem makes it great. I like it because the simple words touch deeply. Hughes in this poem shows how dreams give life. Anyone has dreams, and working for realizing those dreams means making a life, building a future... but if there are no dreams, imagine how meaningless our life would be! ! ! (Report) Reply

    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. (Report) Reply

    A short poem yet the effects created with a tinge of the 'life experience' reflections makes this a powerfully emotive poem. (Report) Reply

    This poem really speaks to me so strongly. There are so many times in my life that i want to give up on my dreams, or think to myself that im never going to reach them. This poem gives me strength to never surrender and lie down, but to always strive to be the best and never stop dreaming, no matter what others might think. We must cherrish each day as if it were our last, and to hold on to our dreams for ever. (Report) Reply
