Homework Help: English

Posted by Troy on Wednesday, March 17, 2010 at 6:01pm.

In Langston Hughes poem "Theme for English B," in the lines 16-26 it says: It's not easy to know what is true for you or me
at twenty-two, my age. But I guess I'm what
I feel and see and hear, Harlem, I hear you:
hear you, hear me--we two--you, me, talk on this page.
(I hear New York, too.) Me--who?
Well, I like to eat, sleep, drink, and be in love.
I like to work, read, learn, and understand life.
I like a pipe for a Christmas present,
or records--Bessie, bop, or Bach.
I guess being colored doesn't make me not like
the same things other folks like who are other races.
HOW DO I MAKE THIS A LINE-BY-LINE TRANSLATION?? PLAESE AND THANK YOU!!!!!
