The Poetry Editor here at TeachPoet was able to get access to the poems considered to honor the immensity of the Inauguration, January 2017. In the end, no poet or poem was lucky enough to be performed that day. Here, we will publish the poems that were almost chosen for immortality, a resting place for only the best poems, believe me.
