A: Do you know?

"...In today’s sharp sparkle, this winter air,
any thing can be made, any sentence begun.
On the brink, on the brim, on the cusp,

praise song for walking forward in that light."

from: "Praise Song for the Day,” written and recited by Elizabeth Alexander at President Obama's inauguration.
