  1. Innaugural poet:
    an unexpected songbird singing
    on our clothesline

    • Hello, Jan. I’m so glad to share the joy of hearing his poem with you. I like your haiku so much that I’d like to post it on its own just following Richard Blanco’s reading. May I? I also was quite taken by his songbird line, and I think he was also moved as he read it. ~ Donna


  2. One sun. Yeah, this poem moved me. Thanks for posting it!

    • You’re very welcome. In turn, I read your postings on Richard Blanco’s Inaugural poem and other postings of his other poems. I like his voice, his sensibility, and that, I surmise, he thinks of himself as that songbird on a clothesline. Thanks for all that, Donna

      • Ah, the songbird. Yes, that works. Nice! Thank you.
