I love to see the big white moon, I love the rain drops falling I love the deepness of the blue,
Langston Hughes in 1925
by Langston Hughes
[first published in the May 1922 issue of Crisis]
A-shining in the sky;
I love to see the little stars,
When the shadow clouds go by.
On my roof-top in the night;
I love the soft wind’s sighing,
Before the dawn’s gray light.
In my Lord’s heaven above;
But better than all these things I think,
I love my lady love.
I love to see the big white moon,
I love the rain drops falling
I love the deepness of the blue,
