    I admire this article, but I did more than start a poetry revolution. I also cared for the ponies stationed at the shoppe and tended to Benjamin Franklin's cats whenever he so pleased. I also rock climbed skydived, and invented the toilet.

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!
