Legislators of the World

Thank you, Maya Angelou

Happy Birthday, Walt Whitman
"For [poets] not only behold intensely the present as it is, and discover those laws according to which present things ought to be ordered, but they behold the future in the present, and their thoughts are the germs of the flower and the fruit of latest time."
--Percy Bysse Shelley


Though the path be hard and long,
still we strive in expectation,
join we now their ageless song
one with them in aspiration.
One in name, in honor one
guard we well the crown they won,
What they dreamed, be ours to do,
hope their hopes and seal them true.
