I think, that Langston Hughes is the best poet ever born. If we read his
poem and try to understand the meaning then we come to know that how
important message we were neglecting.He is like Arthur Doyle in detective
genre,like federer in tennis, Sachin in cricket, bush in politics, picasso
in art, undertaker in wrestling, Shakespeare in drama wriring. He is a
ideal poet for a budding poet. He is outstanding. He is marvelous, superb,
magnificient, mind-blowing, excellent, dominating, inspiring and what not.

this has to be one of the greatest poems i ever read! if your intelligent
enough to comprehend what he is trying to say i think he is breally
brilliant in his use of words and repition. hesz basically talking about
his life as a colored man and how great it would be if the world was not
prejudice and racist...kk =]

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.

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!
