To Melida from Barack Obama's Inaugural Poet, Blanco

A personal message from President Obama's Inaugural Poet, Richard Blanco

"Dear Melida,
I read your wonderful poem " There in a City," and was very moved by it, and by the fact that it was inspired by the inaugural poem. Indeed, we should have poetry as part of our public/national dialogue every moment we can. Thanks for having the vision to do this for the Mayor's inauguration.
And for a great, captivating poem.
Richard Blanco
