* Bring me all of your dreams, You dreamer, Bring me all your Heart melodies That I may wrap them In a blue cloud-cloth Away from the too-rough fingers Of the world. * The Cramps - Love Me, mp3
I've been reading Rampersad's "Ralph Ellison" and he's pretty short with Langston Hughes, whose poetry I've admired for years. I also admire Ellison, but it's Hughes' photo I have in my "Guys" collection. Thank you Alice, for these beautiful words from a master modernist. It's no surprise that he and Ralph Ellison were friends from the beginning.
Oh yeah. I now realize I probably got the photo of Langston which I now have, from you Alice, right here several weeks ago!Post a Comment
