The Poet: Langston Hughes, “I Dream A World”

“I Dream A World”

“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- 
Of such I dream, my world!”

- Langston Hughes
