A Poem for Sunday: I Continue to Dream by Langston Hughes

I had another poem scheduled to share with you today but my heart broke last night with the news of the Trayvon verdict and that poem no longer worked for how I was feeling so I thought I would share this Langston Hughes one with you instead.

I Continue to Dream
I take my dreams and make of them a bronze vase
and a round fountain with a beautiful statue in its center. And a song with a broken heart and I ask you: Do you understand my dreams? Sometimes you say you do, And sometimes you say you don’t. Either way it doesn’t matter. I continue to dream.
