Did you enjoy the poem? Have you heard any other of Amanda Gorman's poems?

yes, I enjoy the poem. I haven't heard before any kind of poem like this. she asked everything about morning miracles. I heard it 3times because the first time it was hard to understand without subtitles but the 3time I listen carefully I see that is the meaning of the story.

Hello Leila77,

We are changing the focus of our Video zone section over the coming months and removing the transcripts is the first part of the change. You can easily find the transcript of this particular Video zone by searching the internet for 'Amanda Gorman the Miracle of Morning'.

We'll be publishing new videos with exercises on a regular basis and we hope you'll still find the section useful.

All the best,


The LearnEnglish Team

Hi Kirk, Thanks for your reply. Every section in your website is useful and Video zone is not only useful but interesting as well. No problem with this change. It's an opportunity for me to improve my listening skill.

I don't normally write poems but I consider it a beautiful way of expressing my feelings.
