POETRYMONTH-HUGHES

Langston HughesHughes

"My soul has grown deep like the rivers."

DREAMSHold fast to dreamsFor if dreams dieLife is a broken-winged birdThat cannot fly.Hold fast to dreamsFor if dreams goLife is a barren fieldFrozen with snow

I, TOO, SING AMERICAI, too, sing America.I am the darker brother.They send me to eat in the kitchenWhen company comes,But I laugh,And eat well,And grow strong.Tomorrow,I'll be at the tableWhen company comes.Nobody'll dareSay to me,"Eat in the kitchen,"Then.Besides, They'll see how beautiful I amAnd be ashamed--I, too, am America.
