Jeanine Payer and Elizabeth Alexander Collaboration

Jeanine Payer
Elements of Change, a commemorative collection exclusively featuring excerpts from President Obama's inaugural poem, Praise Song for the Day, by Elizabeth Alexander.

Praise necklace sterling silver with 14k detail $440
More styles available at Metier

Love beyond marital, filial, national,
love that casts a widening pool of light,
love with no need to pre-empt grievance.

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.

-Elizabeth Alexander
