  • 1. YOUR THOUGHTS ON POETRYDreams by Langston Hughes Your notes and thoughtsHold fast to dreamsFor if dreams dieLife is a broken-winged birdThat cannot fly.Hold fast to dreamsFor when dreams goLife is a barren fieldFrozen with snow.The Red WheelbarrowBy William Carlos Williams So much depends upon A red wheel barrow Glazed with rain water beside the white chickens.maggie and milly and molly and mayby E.E. Cummingsmaggie and milly and molly and maywent down to the beach [to play one day]and maggie discovered a shell that sangso sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles, andmilly befriended a stranded starwhose rays five languid fingers were;and molly was chased by a horrible thingwhich raced sideways while blowing bubbles; andmay went home with a smooth round stoneas small as a world and as large as alone.for whatever we lose [like a you or a me]it is always ourselves we find in the sea.
