Juke Box Love Song

I could take the Harlem night
and wrap around you,
Take the neon light
and make a crown.
Take the Lenox buses,
Taxis, subways,
And for your love song
tone their rumble down.
Take Harlem’s heartbeat,
Make a drum beat,
Put it on a record, let it whirl,
And while we listen to it play,
Dance with you till day –
Dance with you,
my sweet brown
Harlem girl.
Langston Hughes, 1950, 1959
Wishing you and yours a safe, pleasant and joyous holiday season.

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
