This poem by Langston Hughes highlights the importance of dreams to our success in life.It is also one of my all time favorites,and it is the last of my favorites I will share with you.I hope they have been an inspiration to you.


Hold Fast to Dreams

Langston Hughes/ Barbara J. Henry

Hold fast to dreams

For if dreams die,

Life is a broken -winged bird

That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams

For when dreams go,

Life is a barren field

Frozen with snow.

Wonderful poem you have shared.
And I've been thinking about this lately. I have been wanting to venture on with vision, with dreams, but I have not been able to find them, as all of that seemed to fall away when I lost my mother this past summer.
Now it's all coming back to me....
Love,
Christine
