A Poem A Day Starting with Obama’s Inauguration

February 13, 2009

This blog really caught my attention. Starting Today: Poems for the first 100 Days. This is the work of Arrielle Greenberg and Rachel Zucker who write the following: 

100 POEMS, 100 DAYS

The day before the inauguration we sent out a call to poets we admire to write poems that respond, however loosely, to the presidency, the nation, the government or the current political climate. More than one hundred American poets responded immediately. The first 100 poets were each assigned one of President Obama’s first hundred days in office, and each will write a poem reflecting on the state of the nation and the world on that day. A new poem is posted every day.

As of this post, they are up to number 25. Great idea!
