 A Poem for Langston Hughes

by: Nikki Giovanni

 

diamonds are mined...oil is discovered

gold is found . . . but thoughts are uncovered

wool is sheared . . . silk is spun

weaving is hard . . . but words are fun

highways span . . . bridges connect

country roads ramble . . . but I suspect

if i took a rainbow ride

i could be there by your side

metaphor has its point of view

allusion and illusion . . . too

meter . . . verse . . . classical . . . free

poems are what you do to me

let's look at this one more time

since i've put this rap to rhyme

when i take my rainbow ride

you'll be right there by my side

hey bop hey bop hey re re
