I DREAM A WORLD
I dream a world where man
No other man will scorn,
Where love will bless the earth
And peace its paths adorn.
I dream a world where all
Will know sweet freedom's way,
Where greed no longer saps the soul
Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white,
Whatever race you be,
Will share the bounties of the earth
And every man is free,
Where wretchedness will hang its head
And joy, like a pearl,
Attends the needs of all mankind--
Of such I dream, my world!
~*~

 

THE DREAM KEEPER
Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamers.
Bring me all of your
Heart melodies.
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too rough fingers
Of the world..

by Langston Hughes
Langston hughes (1902-1967)

"We younger Negro artists now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased we are glad.
If they aren't, it doesn't matter.
We know we are beautiful..."
- Langston Hughes

Apostrophe To Man

(On reflecting that the world
is ready to go to war again)

Detestable race, continue to expunge yourself, die out.
Breed faster, crowd, encroach, sing hymns, build
bombing airplanes;
Make speeches, unveil statues, issue bonds, parade;
Convert again into explosives the bewildered ammonia
and the distracted cellulose;
Convert again into putrescent matter drawing flies
The hopeful bodies of the young; exhort,
Pray, pull long faces, be earnest,
be all but overcome, be photographed;
Confer, perfect your formulae, commercialize
Bacateria harmful to human tissue,
Put death on the market;
Breed, crowd, encroach,
expand, expunge yourself, die out,
Homo called sapiens.

 

What Lips My Lips Have Kissed, And Where, And Why

What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why, 
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain 
Under my head till morning; but the rain 
Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh 
Upon the glass and listen for reply, 
And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain 
For unremembered lads that not again 
Will turn to me at midnight with a cry. 
Thus in winter stands the lonely tree, 
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one, 
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before: 
I cannot say what loves have come and gone, 
I only know that summer sang in me 
A little while, that in me sings no more. 

Edna St. Vincent Millay

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

BOOK NEWS 

why I love Forest Books

HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY TO FOREST BOOKS!

In 2013, Gregory Wood, Forest Books logoproprietor of FOREST BOOKS in the mission for 
23 years needed to find a new location and fortunately fate led him to a perfect location in Buchanan Plaza in Japantown.

Forest Books has always been a serene oasis of curated excellent quality, near new or gently used, out of print and rare books. I appreciate the peacefulness I feel as soon as I step inside - the soothing sound, light, fragrance, - time slows down as I peruse the orderly bookshelves displaying so attractively the bounty offered in
many genres of interest to me and other 
books with beautiful covers or intriguing
titles that beckon me closer. 

I often find inspiration from my visits to Forest Books and Greg Wood . As I leave to return to everyday life in the City, it is usually with a treasure
I have found there as well as the good vibrations
that linger and follow me into the rest of my day.
