Juke Box Love Song Poem by Langston Hughes

Juke Box Love Song

Rating: 3.9


I could take the Harlem night
and wrap around you,
Take the neon lights and make a crown,
Take the Lenox Avenue busses,
Taxis, subways,
And for your love song tone their rumble down.
Take Harlem's heartbeat,
Make a drumbeat,
Put it on a record, let it whirl,
And while we listen to it play,
Dance with you till day--
Dance with you, my sweet brown Harlem girl.

My teacher loves these poems. He read them to the class. I think Langston had a strong sense of words and I enjoy reading his poems.
