Review of Little White Church by Marilyn Nelson

Little White Church by Marilyn Nelson, a newly elected Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 22, 2013.  Ms. Nelson's poem has obvious rhyme and rhythm issues and a trite, tacked on ending about the Phelps ministry.  I hope that it is not a typical example of the work of a Chancellor.
