Langston Hughes in 1925
After Many Springs
by Langston Hughes
[first published in the August 1922 issue of Crisis]


Now,
In June,
When the night is a vast softness
Filled with blue stars,
And broken shafts of moon-glimmer
Fall upon the earth,
Am I too old to see the fairies dance?
I cannot find them any more.
