    hi I found this poem really wonderful it gives me hope and power to be ambitious, because dreams are like the breath of human being.We can not live and stay in this life without having dream to atchieve and realise it.Thank you for your advice I will keep it in my mind

    I find Hughes' words very righteous because without dreams life is nonsense.No dreams implies no hope and imbitions in life.Wen we dream, we taste hope in life.So, let's have more dreams in life full of hope and prosperity.

    Your poem dream is very short, but it tell us something very true in our life.In some sense, the dream is more ture and more important than the reality, because it can bring the happiness to us.Compared with the pleasure the outside material gives us, this kind of spirit happiness is more deeper and more longer.This reminds me one of poem written by Yeats.In the poem, the king want to escape the wealth belonging to him, and find a very thin dreamer.The king complained that everything belongs to him in his country but ironically he himself did not belong to himself.He lacked the real life in the inner heart.And the thin and poor dreamer gives him some bags of dreams, and the king begin to feel content then.This story told us the power of dream.They are fragile and false in the appearance, but they are also the most powerful and true in our life.So we can not live without dream.Socrates once said, the unexamined life is not worth living.And we can also say, the life without dream is not worth living.

    Simple things are always the most pleasant.I read this poem many times and I think it is written beautifully because we seldom come across a poem that marries simplicity in form with depth in meaning. It is the kind of poems that speak to the minds and tingle the hearts with a mild tone of sorrow.

Best Poem of Langston Hughes

Mother To Son

Well, son, I'll tell you:
Life for me ain't been no crystal stair.
It's had tacks in it,
And splinters,
And boards torn up,
And places with no carpet on the floor—
Bare.
But all the time
I'se been a-climbin' on,
And reachin' landin's,
And turnin' corners,
And sometimes goin' in the dark
Where there ain't been no light.
So, boy, don't you turn back.
Don't you set down on the steps.
'Cause you finds it's kinder hard.
Don't you fall now—
For I'se still goin', honey,
I'se still climbin',
And life for me ain't been no crystal stair.

Problems

2 and 2 are 4.
4 and 4 are 8.

But what would happen
If the last 4 was late?

And how would it be
If one 2 was me?

Or if the first 4 was you
Divided by 2?
