Last night, President Barack Obama welcomed a diverse group of poets to the White House saying,

“The power of poetry is that everybody experiences it differently. There are no rules for what makes a great poem. Understanding it isn’t just about metaphor or meter. Instead, a great poem is one that resonates with us, that challenges us and that teaches us something about ourselves and the world that we live in.”

Among those invited were rapper Common and R&B singer Jill Scott
