    This poem is very emothional to everybody needs hope. The poet gave us the full arguments to keep dreaming and he used the appropriate metaphore to draw the picture of our future if one day we stop dreaming.then, the poet used a universal theme to moutivate usand he used strength and meaningful words to gives any person that needs mental power for facing all the troubels in his life.So, accept the advice of the poet and keep dreaming without an end.

    'Dreams' by L.Hughes is really the first poem that I find it profoundly impressing this effect is made by the fact that it makes as looking straight forward to our aims and at same time it provides us with the needed strength to make those dreams come true

    Hi to everybody:
    This poem contains a meaning that everybody needs.It means strength, when there is pain.light when there is darkness and hope that we all should have.A hard experience doesn't mean to give up and lose ourselves.A dream comes each morning and each night(each moment) .whenever we think, it is a dream and whenever we live, there is a dream

    The poem was amazing because it gives me some thing of hardness which means strength, intensity and beautiful in the same time.Faithfully, this poem is so admirable and marvelous and has a great and effective impact on the reader
