Inaugural interlude

Poet Carole Boston Weatherford has created a beautiful video-poem tribute, "American Baptism," in honor of this amazing Inaugural day. Pause and enjoy. I'm looking forward to Elizabeth Alexander's poem at the ceremony today, too. Wonderful how we turn to poetry as we take in the moment. And what a moment!

Check back on Friday for the second half of my "White House Puppy" poems: Rebecca Kai Dotlich's poem to bookend J. Patrick Lewis's "A Puppy for the White House."
