Via CBS News/CBS this morning:  The republic rising by Amanda Gorman—excerpt:

“…On each corner of this land,

In this cacophony of a country,

We reach down long hands,

That we all might stand…”

The entire poem/performance video via the link — including beautiful music by Jon Batiste.

  1. Thanks to you, I saw this brilliant poet reciting her lines via the CBS segment and Jon Baptiste gave her impassioned words brilliant accompaniment on the piano. It reminded me of Maya Angelou’s poem for Bill Clinton’s Presidential inauguration.
