Daybreak In Alabama Comments

Rating: 3.6

When I get to be a composer
I'm gonna write me some music about
Daybreak in Alabama
And I'm gonna put the purtiest songs in it


Langston Hughes

What I like about this poem is how he tries to say as much as possible with simple, meaningful lines.

Beautiful poem! Went straight to my heart. That is what we simple folks dream. Holding each other's hand and Mother Earth holding us all giving space to realize our dreams.

This daybreak poem speaks to Hughes' simplicity, which actually was his genius.

Maybe I take it all wrong but I see a lot of humor in his writing.

All of Langston Hughes' poetry is a cry from the Harlem Renaissance, but this one in particular is hauntingly beautiful. I love to perform this for my high school class, and they can even be seen moved to tears sometimes...and it always sparks a great discussion.
