Dreams Dreams Presentation Transcript

  • Dreams
    -Langston Hughes
  • I had a dream last night. I dreamt that I was flying an aeroplane.
  • I have a dream. It will come true some day.
  • What does dream mean in the first sentence? Does it mean the same thing in the second sentence?
  • Dreams are those pictures you see in your mind when you are sleeping.You also dream about what you want to achieve in future. You may want to pass your exams with good marks or you may want to play cricket for the Indian team and so on.
  • Now read ‘Dreams’ by Langston Hughes
    What does he mean by dreams here?
  • Dreams
    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.
