Dream Deferred

Post by Moshda on Fri Oct 01, 2010 4:12 pm

Ok, I had to write this poem for my English class, answering the question "What happens to a dream deferred?" inserting my own dream. So, I wrote about how I used to feel when I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to get a harp. Hopefully, in about 3 weeks, I'll be able to set aside a day to drive to Salem, Massachusetts and go pick up my harp!

What happens if I can’t buy a harp?

Will I sit forlorn, like an angel with broken wings,
Dreaming of the day I’ll make a harp sing?

Like treasure buried in the sand,
What talent lies in each of my hands?

As sure as I know the sun will rise each day,
I will keep hoping for a harp to soon play.

That's really nice, I can feel your longing. My one suggestion is that you change the first line to 'Will I sit forlorn, like and angel with a broken wing' so that it rhymes. Did you get the harp?
