Dear Mrs. Green,
How are you today?
Really, how are you?
I see you wore pearls today,
Your blouse of navy blue.

How nice you look,
How especially fresh
For todayís Inauguration.
Nobody could ever, ever say
You didnít dress for the occasion.

I see you there
Sitting at your desk,
Brow furrowed to the bone,
Maybe your scowling is revealing
Youíre writing a poem of your own?

Read it aloud,
Please, Mrs. Green.
Tell us all you want to say.
Like a pool of light, let your words be spread
On this monumental day.
