African American Poetry (1870-1927): A Digital Anthology

Water-Front Streets by Langston Hughes

The spring is not so beautiful there,--
   But dream ships sail away
To where the spring is wondrous rare
   And life is gay.

The spring is not so beautiful there,--
   But lads put out to sea
Who carry beauties in their hearts
   And dreams, like me.
