The Dedication to commemorate the day. But the glare caused by sun shining off of yesterday's heavy snowfall makes him unable to read the typed words. He recites a shorter poem, The Gift Outright, from memory instead, then hands the original, handwritten poem to Jacqueline Kennedy who will have it framed and placed on the wall in her husband's office. A tiny drama unfolding against the sweeping backdrop of history. A moment in time that brings that day to life again.
