"Quiet Girl" by Langston Hughes

Thank you Langston for seeing and writing about women like me.  I love you.  Happy Birthday.  Hughes was born on February 1, 1902.

Quiet Girl

I would liken you

To a night without stars

Were it not for your eyes.

I would liken you

To a sleep without dreams

Were it not for your songs.
