My Loves

by Langston Hughes

I love to see the big white moon, 
A-shining in the sky;
I love to see the little stars, 
When the shadow clouds go by.

I love the rain drops falling
On my roof-top in the night;
I love the soft wind’s sighing, 
Before the dawn’s gray light.

I love the deepness of the blue, 
In my Lord’s heaven above; 
But better than all these things I think, 
I love my lady love.
