  1. I hadn’t read his work in so long. I took a lot of English classes in college so I remember him!

  2. Lovely poem – so true. Thanks for sharing – I am looking forward to the month of poems.

  3. That’s a wonderful one to share. I love that you’ve had it as a fave for so long!

  4. I remember reading a lot of Hughes in High School or college! I should have revisited his writing a long time ago.

  5. Langston Hughes is one of my favorites too! Can’t wait to read more!

  6. Beautiful poem. I have never heard of this author before. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I love this and Langston Hughes is one of my favorite poets of all time. I’m waiting to birth a baby boy so that I can name him Langston. Yay for Black History Month!

  8. This Langston Hughes poem describes my grandparent’s experience perfectly. It’s so poignant. I can’t wait to share it with my teen daughter.

  9. I LOVE this! I teach this poem to my 8th graders. It’s not in our new textbook (they included “Harlem Night Song” instead), but I think it is one of his most powerful. He was such a voice of the African American community during his time, and he still speaks so much to young and old people of all backgrounds and races today.

  10. Langston is one of my favorite poets. Though he’s not that popular in the Caribbean I still know of his works. Great Choice
