Mr. Hughes

One of my favorite people I studied over the summer was Langston Hughes. The man was a wordsmith. 

Since I returned to my classroom, I have many poetic gems I wanted to share with my students. Hence a little DIY poster project.

The text of the poems is:

Bring me all your dreams

You Dreamers

Bring me all your 

Heart melodies

That I may wrap them 

In a blue cloth-cloud

Away from the too-rough fingers

Of the World
