Life is for the Living ~ Langston Hughes

Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music. 
And death a note unsaid.

The Dream Keeper ~ Langston Hughes

Bring me all of your dreams

You dreamers,

Bring me all of your

Heart melodies

That I may wrap them

In a blue cloud-cloth

Away from the too-rough fingers

Of the world.

Silence ~ Poem by Langston Hughes

I catch the pattern 
Of your silence
Before you speak

I do not need
To hear a word.

In your silence
Every tone I seek
Is heard.

Walkers of the Morning ~ Poem by Langston Hughes

Walkers of the Morning

Being walkers with the dawn and morning,
Walkers with the sun and morning,
We are not afraid of night,
Nor days of gloom,
Nor darkness–
Being walkers with the sun and morning.

Langston Hughes

“Walkers With The Dawn ~ Poem by Langston Hughes

Walkers With The Dawn

Being walkers with the dawn and morning,

Walkers with the sun and morning,

We are not afraid of night,

Nor days of gloom,

Nor darkness–

Being walkers with the sun and morning.
