The man has taste! (Did you see the item in the summer about the poems he published as an undergraduate?)
So we're finally going to have a president who respects poetry! Love your blog. And your poetry, too. :)
Andrew--yes. I'm just thrilled to have poet/poetry fan in the White House. Maya-- Thank you for leaving a note. I believe your sister visited recently, say hello to her. I hope all is going well with your new book-- I've been so impressed with your work since Katherine introduced me to it. All the best to you.
Finally, a president who appreciates literature. No matter how you slice it, it's all good.
It crossed my mind today to wonder if he picked up a Walcott collection after reading Walcott's poem in response to his election. (I think the poem was in the Guardian.)
almost more importantly: a first lady in a baseball cap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! W00T!
Always love to hear from you...and the anonymous option is open for those feeling shy.
