National Poetry Month Poem of the Day: ‘On the Pulse of Morning’ by Maya Angelou

For National Poetry Month, Flavorwire is posting a poem a day. We’re cheating a bit for today’s poem, but it wouldn’t be a proper celebration without something from Dr. Maya Angelou.

In this case, we’ve picked this video of Angelou reciting “On the Pulse of the Morning” from the 1993 Presidential Inaugural.
