Homework Help: AP English Lit

Posted by Kate on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 12:17pm.


I was wondering what kind of poem "Dream Variations" by Langston Hughes is? I've narrowed it down to blank verse or free verse but I'm not sure. Please help. Here is the poem:

Dream Variations

To fling my arms wide
In some place of the sun,
To whirl and to dance
Till the white day is done.
Then rest at cool evening
Beneath a tall tree
While night comes on gently,
Dark Like Me---
That is my dream!

To fling my arms wide
In the face of the sun,
Dance! Whirl! Whirl!
Till the quick day is done.
Rest at pale evening...
A tall, slim tree...
Night coming tenderly
Black like me.

Thank you!
