Puisi Bahasa Inggris - As A Grew Older

Setelah sebelumnya kita telah membaca puisi perpisahan sahabat. Sekarang ini adalah puisi berbahasa Inggris yang ane kutip dari karangan Langston Hughes. Ia adalah salah satu penyair asli Amerika Serikat.

Puisi bahasa Inggris ini berjudul "As A Grew Older"

It was a long time ago
I have almost forgotten my dream
But it was there then,
In front of me,
Bright like a sun--
My dream.
And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose until it touched by the sky--
The wall.
Shadow.
I am black.
I lie down in the shadow.
No longer the light of my dream before me,
Above me.
Only the thick wall.
Only the shadow.
My hands!
My dark hands!
Break through the wall!
Find my dream!
Help me to shatter this darkness,
To smash this night,
To break this shadow
Into a thousand lights of sun
Into a thousand whirling dreams
Of sun!

By Langston Hughes

Nah itu dia salah satu puisi bahasa Inggris karya Langston Hughes.
