Dreams: Happy New Year

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
Langston Hughes
American
(1901-1967)

  3. A beautiful poem, and its message worth remembering throughout 2012, and thereafter. I started somewhat lacking in my usual optimism, but I'm glad it has returned!
