Martin Luther King Jr., by Eileen Spinelli

A celebrated poet's heartfelt ode to the dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

image Martin Luther King Jr.

He had a dream.
He understood
the sturdy grace
of brotherhood.

He had a dream–
that simple joy
would gently bless
each girl and boy.

He shared his dream.
His wise words shone:
"Join hands."
"We cannot walk alone."

He had a dream
all hearts can sing:
"This is our hope...
let freedom ring."
