  1. Dear Gil,
    You read it beautifully and its a great surprise upon my visit as it is the first poem that crossed my mind when I heard the sad passing of Mr. Robin Williams! I started a sketch on his honor but was slightly too emotional to finish so I just let it go….perhaps at some other time will finish it. I do miss him! – It is that scene from 'The Dead Poets Society' when students grant him the highest respect by standing on top of desks calling 'O Captain! My Captain!' ; such display of human emotion is beyond comprehension touching and truly glorified cinematically Whitman's poem too. Again, you read it beautifully and I enjoyed the ships you used; wonderful setting. Thank you for sharing your talent – Greetings

  2. You MUST try listening to this poem with the mr. bean soundtrack in the background. It sounds like they were made for each other. Just type in: "Mr. Bean Intro Soundtrack / Theme" and let them play at the same time, with the soundtrack maybe a couple seconds ahead. I promise you will not be disappointed.
