THE MIRACLE OF MORNING

I first heard about Amanda Gorman at the Biden/Harris Inauguration this week. I went looking and found this. The young lady has been around for a while.

What a charisma, what a soul, what a talent!

Enjoy another one of her poems!

================================

Amanda Gorman has written poems for historic occasions. Now she has made history herself.

She delivered her original composition, “The Hill We Climb,” at the Capitol in front of President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and the entire nation.

She said she researched the speeches of Abraham Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as she began writing. But it was the riots at the Capitol that made a closing impact.

President Biden’s inauguration was far from the first time 22-year-old Amanda Gorman gave a moving performance. Gorman, who became the youngest known inaugural poet when she read “The Hill We Climb” on Wednesday, has previously performed five original poems commissioned by “CBS This Morning” .

The first was a Thanksgiving poem called “The Republic Gives Thanks“, which she performed at Harvard University in 2018 when she was a student there.

She collaborated with the Boston Pops for the Independence Day work “Believer’s Hymn for the Republic” and with musician Jon Batiste for a special Empire State Building performance of “The Republic Rising“. 

In 2020, she paid tribute to Americans’ resilience during the coronavirus pandemic with her composition “The Miracle of Morning“, and she spoke out on social justice and racial equality with her poem “Fury and Faith“.
