Author: Richard Blanco
One Today is a commemorative chapbook of Richard Blanco’s inaugural poem, presented January 21, 2013 during President Barack Obama’s inauguration ceremony.
A mini review for a mini book (I think it's a total of 30 pages, maybe). I picked it up while at work on the library and read it during my break (in 15 minutes). I love poetry and I am getting more involved with history so I enjoyed the series of poems.
I saw it as both many poems and one poem that tie us, as a nation, together for a day. Nothing extraordinary, just a day in or lives.
I recommend for a poetry lover who doesn't want a big read or heavy interpretation.
