Songs - Poem by Langston Hughes

I sat there singing her
Songs in the dark.

She said;
'I do not understand
The words'.

I said;
'There are
No words'.

    Let this song be sung till eternity and fill the vast emptiness of this universe and let us enjoy its melody ever after. I am humbled. (Report) Reply
