Vachel Lindsay - A Sense of Humor

NO man should stand before the moon 
To make sweet song thereon, 
With dandified importance, 
His sense of humor gone.

Nay, let us don the motley cap, 
The jester's chastened mien, 
If we would woo that looking-glass 
And see what should be seen.

O mirror on fair Heaven's wall, 
We find there what we bring. 
So, let us smile in honest part 
And deck our souls and sing.

Yea, by the chastened jest alone 
Will ghosts and terrors pass, 
And fays, or suchlike friendly things, 
Throw kisses through the glass.

I am Anthony Thompso

I am Anthony Thompson AKA Ade. I serve as co-founder, artistic dircetor / project manager for The Langston Hughes Cultural Enrichment Movement. I became interest in the works of Hughes at an young age. Langston was an ordinary man hoo was honored to be a part of the African-American working class community. His strong racial pride allowed him to present his character with dignity and pride. He became the Negro Poet of his people. Please visit www.hughesculturalenrichment.webs.com to view our work and langston Hughes art exhibition.
