Summary: Richard Blanco's poem "One Today" illustrates the peaceful beauty of America and the unity of the American spirit. This poem depicts the events of a single day in the country. When the sun rises in the morning, it signifies the start of a new day. The moon often represents night, while the moon when full represents hope, joy, and optimism.
People often use the word "one" as an adjective to describe someone or something that is only once in a lifetime. This means that you will never see or hear of this person or thing again. For example, someone said that they would never meet anyone as beautiful as Angelina Jolie. Another example is that no one owns a blue car; they are all either red or white.
In conclusion, one is only once in a lifetime. Therefore, you should make every moment count because you might never have another chance like this again.
Richard Blanco's song "One Today" commemorated Barack Obama's second inauguration in 2013. The poet of "One Today," Richard Blanco, depicts the oneness of nature in this poem. Nature and all of its constituents are one. The sun and moon beam on everyone without discrimination. So too do all living things share this same destiny. Humans were not created to be isolated individuals but rather we were born into a world where we belong to each other. Through this connection we learn what it means to respect others and ourselves.
In mathematics, one is any number that is equal to another plus or minus infinity. Because infinity can't be counted, one is always a very large number.
Thus, one today means exactly that: one today.
Poetry in public places In line with Blanco's past work, "One Today" is a superb example of public poetry: The lines are loose and open, and the poetry is primarily conversational, with a flexible iambic pentameter stanza pattern. They range from lyrical to satirical, and from personal to political.
The poem begins calmly, but then turns dark and ominous as it progresses. Toward the end, we are told that "one day will be enough," which some have taken to mean that President Kennedy's death will be enough time for mourning heaps more sorrow than anyone could bear. But others see something different here: That one day will be enough time to honor his memory and keep his legacy alive.
Public art has been used as a way to commemorate people dead and alive, including presidents. Here in Dallas, we have many poems written by Robert Frost set in stone at various locations around the city. One such monument is located on Market Street near the Trinity University campus. It features a loose rendering of an arm holding a scythe, symbolic of how death claims us all. Below the image is a verse written by Frost.
The sound of words being spoken Out of respect for John F. Kennedy, other presidents have had poems written about them and placed in public spaces.

This short story/essay was written by Sarah Orne Jewett in 1885. It was first published in the Boston Evening Transcript newspaper on January 5, 1886.
The story tells about a young woman who leaves her home in New York City to travel across America with her friend. They stop at various places along the way including a small village in Massachusetts where Jewett once lived. While in the village, the women visit some of the sites that they had seen before but now with new eyes because they are experienced travelers. They also meet some interesting people including a man who talks with his hands. Finally, they arrive at Washington, D.C. where the woman visits many important places including the White House.
Jewett used her experience as a journalist to write about many different subjects from politics to culture. This story illustrates how she would use her imagination to describe something she has never seen before. In this case, it is a small village in Massachusetts.
