the collected poems of langston hughes

put some rhythm in your step with Langston

Langston Hughes was a Jazz poet, a Blues Poet.  His poems have tremendous rhythm.

Plant your toes in the cool swamp mud.

Step and leave no track.

Hurry, sweating runner!

The hounds are at your back.

–Langston Hughes, from Flight.
