Great idea! Yes, the video turned out exceptionally well. Really captures the poem, I think.

Is this going to start a new trend? You'll have to start your own MTV - maybe "PTV" = Poetry Television...

Lovely idea. I can see this video take the lead in PTV. And I must admit, I see the old MTV bumpers (at least the ones we had in Europe) be part of that, too. I mean the ones with Dennis Leary or with Lou Reed reciting Shakespeare. "Is that a dagger I see before me..."

WHAAAAATTT??? Thank you for the generous mention!

I really like the poem. I walk in the park every day. Especially the last stanza makes it super complete. The video is awesome. I like the atmosphere of the images, and the music and reading are perfect. Really great for sharing. Loved. It.

Of course Arjan, this shoutout was long overdue. Thanks for the appreciation. I was not too sure when starting out if there will be any creative output worth publishing, but the video eventually made me feel all the right things and I went ahead and published it. Glad that it resonates with you 😀
