The Dream Keeper


Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamers,
Bring me all of your
Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world.


Langston Hughes


I read a bunch of poems to Sean, 5, this evening before he went to sleep. He didn't say much, but after I read this one he leaned over and kissed me on the cheek.
