One of the most important voices of the Harlem Renaissance.

Langston Hughes

Two poems by this wonderful poet.

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams For if dreams die Life is a broken-winged bird That cannot fly. Hold fast to dreams For when dreams go Life is a barren field Frozen with snow.

Dream Deferred

What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun?

Or fester like a sore-- And then run?

Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over-- like a syrupy sweet?

Maybe it just sags like a heavy load.

Maybe it just sags like a heavy load. Or does it explode?

***

Langston Hughes born: February 1, 1902 died: May 22, 1967
