A Vision: Amanda Gorman

A Vision 

A talented young poet 
Rolls out her words – 
Wave after wave – 
Over a cold Capitol Hill  

Her tone as incisive as the 
sharp winter air 
Her delivery as flawless 
As the sparkling blue sky 

Leading a nation –
Broken by lies –
Back to the truth
Of the spoken word

Her cultured voice
a polished stone
that was once a rock
A gift from past generations
Hard-edged
Casting back the heat
Warming the hands
Of those that held it fast

She stands there
Unflinching under
The stare of the lawmakers
Delicate and strong in
A bright yellow coat
Determined to succeed
Already a phenomenal woman
