Langston Hughes

I'd just like to put it down
in black and white,
Langston,
while it's there
that I'm proud to see
your name on my
'also read' list

I just wanted you to know.


(and happy 105th birthday, February 1 this year 2007...)

{{ and apologies to all those who googled or indexed this in the hope of reading something brilliant about him... the selection of his poetry here on Poemhunter is no way a full representation of his own brilliance. There's much more to find. }}

    He made it to my 'People who read SGK also read: Langston Hughes' - I was very proud too. Merry Christmas, Miguelito.
