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.”
