Starting Today: poems for the first 100 days of the Obama administration

"Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again the work of remaking America."
President Barack Obama, January 20, 2009

Just another example of the interesting things people are doing using blogs -

Every day for the next 100 days, STARTING TODAY will post a new poem by a contemporary American poet, and the poems will be written for, and during, the first 100 days of the new Obama administration.

Day one's poem was Elizabeth Alexander's "Praise Song for the Day" that she read at the inauguration.

The two blog creators are Maine poet, Arielle Greenberg and Rachel Zucker from New York. The two also co-edited Women Poets on Mentorship: Efforts and Affections
