We head home: through the gloss of rain or weight
of snow, or the plum blush of dusk, but always--home,
always under one sky, our sky. And always one moon
like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop
and every window, of one country---all of us---
facing the stars
hope---an new constellation
waiting for us to map it,
waiting for us to name it---together.

"One Today"
Richard Blanco

Recited at the Inauguration of President Barack Obama January 2013
