Praise Song for the Day

      Elizabeth Alexander’s poem,”Praise Song for the Day”, is a poem about Barrack’s Obama’s Presidential Inauguration and its an Ode poem. This poem relates to the theme that everyone has their own unique lives, but everyone live’s are connected to their community and so many people have died for them to have their freedom, and that we should live for life with love. Some example that support this theme is “walking past each other, catching each other’s eyes or not, about to speak or speaking.” (Line 2-3) this line is talking about how people past each other everyday and they all have their own unique lives and they mind their own business. “A woman and her son wait for the bus. A farmer consider the changing sky. A teacher says, Take out your pencils. Begin.” (Line 13-15)  This line tells that some people are connected but others just have their own lives. “Someone is stitching up a hem, darning a hole in a uniform, patching a tire” (Line 8-9) This line means that they are some people out there repairing things and working for the community.
