Dream Variations


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 the cool evening

Beneath a tall tree

While night comes on gently,

   Dark like me –

That’s 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.

Langston Hughes (1924, 1926)

May your dreams become realities…….

Peace,
