Cute Alert! – Cute Alert!

OK, OK, I know.  Today is my Blogger’s Holiday.  I typically do not post on Sundays, but I stumbled across this amazing video this morning.

I’ve watched it a number of times, and am amazed at what a three-year-old boy can do.

Without further ado…

Litany, by Billy Collins as you have never heard it before…

  1. Gee, Richard, I so was impressed I tried to blog it to read the ‘lyrics’ (words) because the video screen was cut off after ‘by’. So perhaps you don’t know who the author is either. In any case, a very well-wrought reading. Thank you for breaking your routing to bring it to us.

  2. Just in case….Took me awhile but I found it! Nice to have clarity in a relationship!!!!
    LITANY, by Billy Collins,

    Poet Laureate of the U.S.

    [Feb. 2002 issue of Poetry]

    You are the bread and the knife,
    the crystal goblet and the wine.
    You are the dew on the morning grass
    and the burning wheel of the sun.
    You are the white apron of the baker
    and the marsh birds suddenly in flight.

    However, you are not the wind in the orchard,
    the plums on the counter,
    or the house of cards.
    And you are certainly not the pine-scented air.
    There is just no way you are the pine-scented air.

    It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
    maybe even the pigeon on the general’s head,
    but you are not even close
    to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.

    And a quick look in the mirror will show
    that you are neither the boots in the corner
    nor the boat asleep in its boathouse.

    It might interest you to know,
    speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
    that I am the sound of rain on the roof.

    I also happen to be the shooting star,
    the evening paper blowing down an alley,
    and the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table.

    I am also the moon in the trees
    and the blind woman’s tea cup.
    But don’t worry, I am not the bread and the knife.
    You are still the bread and the knife.
    You will always be the bread and the knife,
    not to mention the crystal goblet and–somehow– the wine.

  3. Wow! Wow! Wow!

    And, thanks, Loreen for digging up the words he’s reciting. I watched him once, and followed the words the 2nd time.


    Thanks, Rik
