Halleluiah! “Morning has broken like the First Morning. Black Bird is singing like the First Bird....” A Soul Song of Liberty, Freedom, Justice and Opportunity for All! But most of all Hope - a Song of Hope and timely Transformation intertwining America’s past, present and future into a Brighter Future to come.

An Idealist - a Thoughtful and Compassionate Philosopher’s Stone - the Poetry Man, Mr. Obama, is entering America’s sacred White House. A Man who has Promised to struggle and attempt to do what is Best for the Soul of America - for the Soul of the World and not solely for his own selfish interests.

A Breath of Fresh Air - an ancient, familiar Wind Song filled with old and new Melodies is enlivening Our Nation - tantalizing the World with what is Noble, Bright and Beautiful within Us All. We have but to find Common Purpose. We have but to Join the Soul Song with Our own unique Voices and Harmonies in order to help Create an envisioned World of Harmony - a Visionary World of Balance, Hope and Prosperity.

Thank heavens for Peaceful Revolutions. The American people’s Votes mandated the Energies of a Peaceful Revolution. The Living documents - the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights - which provide the stalwart Shining Beacon and Transmutational Foundation of America sprang from All Revolutions. Fortunately, not all Revolutions have to be born from bloody, chaotic, seemingly endless skirmishes and Wars.

When Ideas come together as a Popular Mandate (the overall Will of the People) - a Peaceful Revolution - powerful and long reaching Changes for the Better (we hope) can be Made. It’s hard Work. Work that demands diligence and perseverance.

There will be Clashes of Will and Alternative Views, but Nurturing and Sustaining the Universally Loving and Courageous Soul Song within what is ‘Noble, Bright and Beautiful’ inside All of Us - what is Best within Us and Best for All of Us as a Whole as We Communicate with one another will see Us through the Energetic Storms.

Mr. Obama, the Poetry Man, is to be America’s next president - next National Father. It will be interesting to see and listen to the conjurings of His National Soul Song, and the Symphonies he will Compose for all of Us to participate within and have a Hand in. America is in the midst of Birthing a few new Verses to be added to Her National Anthem.

Bless the Heart and Soul Song of America!

Inspiring piece. Indeed, we have had tried ad nauseam the pragmatic utilitarian approach and it has been found wanting because it often killed the poetic even as it narcisistically praised itself in verses. Time to try the poetic which speaks to the soul with a vision, not of things as they are, not with mere bread and circuses, but as things could be and ought to be in a just and fair society.

P.S, The real revolution of this country, as hinted in the article, is the silent quite one: the perfectibility as found in the ideal of the equality of ALL persons, flawed and imperfect at first but constantly serarching for its final fulfillment. I am convinced that such is the destiny of this country and when it lives up to that destiny the rest of the world knows it and exhults too.

The rest of the world exhults because it's a dream of humankind, Mr. P., that many people in whole world tried to achieve before - it was part of their destiny too. So well done America for the important step forward, remember that the Brand New Day is only starting. For us all.

Now you are on target, dear Leah. Now you stressed exactly the point :)

We tried Bread and Roses, we tried Guns and Roses we tried a lot of things. I don't understand you use of capitolization. We are all trying to make the world more livable.

Well... not all, no. And it requires some level of organization.
