The Poetry of Obama’s First 100 Days

I found this article on the Huffington Post and thought I’d post a little section of it here. Of course you can check out the whole thing by going here.

“The Obama administration will pass the 100 day mark this week, and you Obamaphiles out there that don’t want to let go of the early, heady times might be interested in Starting Today: Poems for the First 100 Days, a poetic embodiment of the beginning of Obama’s presidency. The site is chock-full of great poets, even attracting some big names like Mark Doty, David Lehman and Fanny Howe (who we featured here just last week).”
