Dikten om stormningen av Kapitolium gjorde Amanda Gorman till en ny fixstjärna på poesihimlen.

Efter uppläsningen vid Joe Bidens installation ville hyllningarna aldrig ta slut.

Genom historien har tre demokratiska presidenter före Joe Biden valt att låta poeter göra en uppläsning under den ceremoni som markerar att en ny amerikansk president installeras.

Joe Biden ville inte vara sämre, och gav den 22-åriga poeten och aktivisten Amanda Gorman uppdraget att skriva och framföra ett nytt verk vid hans installation i Washington på onsdagen.
