Hughes’ po­etry

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - NEWS -

Langston Hughes’ poem “Dream Vari­a­tions” was pub­lished in 1926. We’re shar­ing it here:

To fling my arms wide In some place of the sun, To whirl and to dance Till the white day is done. Then rest at cool evening Be­neath a tall tree While night comes on gen­tly,

Dark like me— That is my dream!

To fling my arms wide In the face of the sun, Dance! Whirl! Whirl! Till the quick day is done. Rest at pale evening . . . A tall, slim tree . . . Night com­ing ten­derly

Black like me.
