The 2013 inaugural poet, Richard Blanco, reciting One Today at the ceremony for President Obama's second term.  Richard Blanco is the youngest inaugural poet ever, as well as the first openly gay, Latino, and immigrant inaugural poet in American history.  You can listen to him reading in less formal settings here at the 2004 Sunken Garden Poetry Festival, and here in Bryant Park in 2012.
