Today's Poem

DREAMS

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.


by Langston Hughes

You need to install a LIKE button at the end of your posts. Great Poems over the last few days. The E.B. White poem about Diego Rivera reminds me of Rivera's mural at the Detroit Museum of Art. The story is (I think) that it was almost painted over due to controversy - but saved by on of Ford's sons.? Politics aside it's a beautiful mural - but I don't know if it has any hidden faces.
