I Dream A World

 This poem was sent to me and I may have shared it with you, but I like it enough to copy it again for you. Unfortunately, I do not know who wrote it but it speaks to me and we all need to dream such a world. A good friend let me know that the author is Langston Hughes. 

"I dream a world where man

No other man will scorn,

Where love will bless the earth

And peace its paths adorn

I dream a world where all

Will know sweet freedom's way,

Where greed no longer saps the soul

Nor avarice blights our day.

A world I dream where black or white,

Whatever race you be,

Will share the bounties of the earth

And every man is free,

Where wretchedness will hang its head

And joy, like a pearl,

Attends the needs of all mankind-

O such I dream, my world!
