Catch

Poem By Langston Hughes

Big Boy came
Carrying a mermaid
On his shoulders
And the mermaid
Had her tail
Curved
Beneath his arm.


Being a fisher boy,
He’d found a fish
To carry—
Half fish,
Half girl
To marry.

For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

It was a long time ago.
I have almost forgotten my dream.
But it was there then,
In front of me,

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,

Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--

Cross

My old man's a white old man
And my old mother's black.
If ever I cursed my white old man
I take my curses back.

I, Too

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
