‘First Executive Hour’

And Then There Was the First American President!

A sample from Book 3

 First Executive Hour
(George Washington)
 
on april 30, 1789
new york city
america's first capital
memories—
left behind
federal hall
its steps
raying in sunshine
 
new york's chancellor robert livingston
standing behind
the general's right hand
on the bible
a resting outline
he spoke
the first
presidential oath's line
an ending so help me God†
kissing of the bible
an act of the Divine†
 
streets...roofs
the cheering crowds lined
a wave received
from their new
presidential headline
 
then inside
his inaugural address
the first official
american presidential speech
—a twenty-minute prime
 
the senate
the house of representatives
a new assembly refined

George Washington is my favorite of all American Presidents. He was a gentlemen. It’s hard to find them these days. Here’s a look at that first swearing in! He set the pace for all those who followed him. [‘First Executive Hour’ was written in 2010.]
