We get to hear the voice of the future poet laureate — the king — of the Harlem Renaissance movement in America. We say "future," because remember Hughes is only eighteen years old when he writes this poem. We get to hear the thoughts and ideas of this recent high school graduate who has already lived in Kansas, Ohio, Illinois, and Missouri, who is on his way to live in Mexico, and who will in the next two years travel the world, visiting places like France, Holland, Haiti, and West Africa. He notices the land and the monuments that define his country. He has a gift, a skill, a serious passion for poetry and for writing poems.
Like the Euphrates River of this poem that is bathed in the light of young dawns, we see a young man a teenager perched on the brink of becoming one of the greatest poets of all time.
