    I can remember the first time I heard one of his poems. It was as if the voice within me was read aloud. In the Harlem renaissance of the 1920s black and proud. I see you I see me, A reflection of what I may be. Genius is as genius does, I once heard your genius born out in word. I wonder do you know the impact you have the lives you touch. You give expression to our innermost feelings in a way that we recognize them true. Mr. Langston Hughes genius is you. By Andrew

    Why can't I find Langston Hughes' short but very powerful poem titled End? Could you possibly include it? Thank you very much.

    one of my favourite poets, social commentary at its best at a time when it was hardly popular particularly in the US

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.

Read the full of Dreams

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark like me-
That is my dream!
