One sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores,
peeking over the Smokies, greeting the faces
of the Great Lakes, spreading a simple truth
across the Great Plains, then charging across the Rockies.
One light, waking up rooftops, under each one, a story
told by our silent gestures moving behind windows...

I thought that was a terrific Inaugural yesterday, I hope my teenager was not representative of the general populace in preferring "Cake Boss" to the televised proceedings in front of the capitol building. Our pragmatist-in-chief was in strong voice, the music was great, the parades were festive, and the poem was profound.
