Al Young wanted everyone to realize they should get out in the world. 383) Langston Hughes was an African American writer so he would want to write about this type of dream, and the sun was the best way he could describe it using nature. Instead of looking at an autumn day and thinking that everything is dying and winter is coming soon, it's looking at the trees, and the colors, and how wonderful everything looks. "Thy woods, this autumn day, that ache and sag And all but cry with color! This reminds people that they could be missing out on a beautiful day.
