Celebrate National Poetry Month with us and enjoy a Poetry Per Diem each day for the month of April!
Today’s poem is from Langston Hughes’ book of poems titled Vintage Hughes.
My People
The night is beautiful,
So the faces of my people.
The stars are beautiful,
So the eyes of my people.
Beautiful, also, is the sun.
Beautiful, also, are the souls of my people.
This book can be found in the Island Free Library
collection, upstairs under call number 811.52 HUG.
