Flakes fall

Sun shines

Emotions stir

Voices sing

Oathes affirm

Poetry enraptures

Hope returns

Thank you Laura Shovan for hosting Poetry Friday! This poem was inspired by Inauguration Day.

  1. You captured it! I especially like “oaths affirm” — it did feel like an affirmation of what our leaders should aspire to and hold themselves accountable to.


  2. My students wrote about hope this week, after working with Emily D.’s “Hope is the thing with feathers.”

    I’m TOTALLY with you on “poetry enraptures!”


  3. You are the last of PF posts, a fitting end! Your poem makes me smile for what’s ahead this Sunday morning. Thank you!
