oops, that poem was "Inaugural Poem" was by Maya Angelou.<quoted text>
My favorite line by T.S Eliot.
"And the wind shall say "Here were decent godless people"
And my favorite poem by Eliot.
A Rock, A River, A Tree
Hosts to species long since departed,
Marked the mastodon.
The dinosaur, who left dry tokens
Of their sojourn here
On our planet floor,
Rock, the River, the Tree, your country.
No less to Midas than the mendicant.
No less to you now than the mastodon then.
Here on the pulse of this new day
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes, into
Your brother's face, your country
And say simply
Good morning.- T.S Eliot
I dunno how her work made it's way out of her folder into my Eliot folder, eh, well.
