4 Langston Hughes poems from 1926 Poetry Magazine

Don Share, senior editor at Poetry magazine, recently tweeted links to poems by Sterling Brown and Melvin Tolson from the 50s and 40s. I started looking through some of the back issues of the magazine and came across, among other pieces, the following 4 poems by Langston Hughes from the November 1926 issue of the publication. 

"Hard Luck"

"Po' Boy Blues"

"Red Roses"

"Suicide"

Great post! It's unfortunate that Langston Hughes' more heart-breaking work continues to be so relevant.
