Maya Angelou Quote

Lift up your eyes
Upon this day breaking for you.
Give birth again
To the dream.
Here, on the pulse of this new day,
You may have the grace to look up and out
And into your sister's eyes,
And into your brother's face,
Your country,
And say simply
Very simply
With hope
Good morning.

'On the Pulse of Morning' (1993); the poem was read at the inauguration of President clinton, January 1993
