In my GT class, I have been assigned the task f researching a famous poet, and I went in not realy knowing what I'd get. I googled famous poets and the first one I saw was Langston Hughes. I read a few of his works, and was absolutely amazed. I have never though so deeply about poetry in my life. And I have been analyzing his works, like this one, Ardella, my favorite of all. I have been able to relate a lot to this poem. It's metephorical meaning confounds me. Liken, meaning to compare, to a night without stars, and liken to a sleep without dreams. If you go deep enough past the surface, you can realy come out with a lot of this poem.
from United States
