就读高中的休斯即开始写诗。随即获得赞赏及一些重要黑人知识分子的支持,如:约翰生 (James Weldon Johnson)及杜博斯 (W.E.B. DuBois:也是一位传奇人物)当休斯在华盛顿特区的华德曼公园旅馆(Wardman Park Hotel) 担任餐厅杂役时,他把自己的3首诗送给着名评论家林赛 (Vachel Lindsay)。林赛的赞赏为休斯赢得了更广泛的读者群。

Hughes began writing poetry in high school. He gained some early recognition and support among important black intellectuals such as James Weldon Johnson and W.E.B DuBois (also an "Amazing American"). While working as a busboy at the Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., Hughes gave three of his poems to Vachel Lindsay, a famous critic. Lindsay's enthusiastic praise won Hughes an even wider audience.
Have you ever written a poem? What was its subject?
This is a test.
