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.
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...
