Langston Hughes

One of the (many) poets I LOVE LOVE LOVE is Langston Hughes. How easy and graceful and accessible and wonderful he is.
(I don’t think that SIR ANDREW MOTION would have liked him. AHA). Yesterday for his 113th birthday GOOGLE DOODLE did this wonderful short animation. I can never tell what WORKS here but if this doesn’t GOOGLE Langston Hughes DOOdle.

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
