I'm a big Billy Collins fan, so I was intrigued to find a few clips on YouTube where somebody has taken poems of his and backed them visually.

Kind of cool, I reckon...here's one, but there are more...

Thanks Essedarius, I am also a big Billy Collins fan, as you mey remember.

Somehow having the poem read by the poet himself is even more uplifting and thought provoking than reading it off of the page of a book, or a web site. I think that there must be a revolution going on in the country where it concerns
poety, at least Billy Collins' poetry; there must be 15-20 different videos of animation and background scenes, all set to his poetry, on Yahoo, Google & YouTube. Not that that is a bad thing,
: but still surprising in this day and age.
