I am also analyzing this as part of an english project. I found this poem
with the part that is my dream in the second stanza. If you have "That is
my dream!" in the second stanza, the two stanzas have identical word count,
creating in essence the similarity between these two. I think that this was
used to show that he was hoping that his dream of equlaity and reality
would eventually become the same.

I used to thnk poetry was the dullest thing but after studying it in
English i have realised its pretty cool and this poem by Langston Hughes
and changed my feelings towards poetry.

The first stanza was a representation of a white persons day. It is his
dream to be able to experience the life of a white man. The second stanza
represented the reality. He is a black man whose days are dry and sad and
he is demanded to work. Notice at the end of the second stanza he doesn't
repeat, "That is my dream.." Why? Because its reality. Comeon people its
plain and clear what the poem is about. I just wish people would try to
stop sugar coating the real meaning!

I must agree with Ranata, the first verse is the dream and the second verse
is the variation. Huhges' narrator is the victim of oppression, and he is
dancing "some place of the sun". He calmly says, "to whirl and to dance,"
while in the second verse he is clearly more excited. As if there is no
opression anymore, he exclaims, "DANCE! WHIRL!". Obviously, the second
verse is the variation.
