The Dream Keeper - Poem by Langston Hughes

Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamer,
Bring me all your
Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.

    This sings! Makes me want to curl up in an armchair and read more and more Langston Hughes. He is wise, he is gentle, and then he can roar like a lion in the wilderness (Report) Reply

    Wow! That was beautiful. Dreams can be very fragile... and should be tenderly nurtured. (Report) Reply
