What happens when you turn a poem into a short animated film? When the poet is Billy Collins the results can be pretty darn amazing.

Ok, so I'll use the overused word, Awesome! I especially liked the poem "Forgetfulness" as it had a very twilight zone quality attached to it [at least for me].

It's more than worthy of the 15 minutes to view the whole thing.

Thanks, Ron!

That was quite the presentation.  I loved the last one and it could be read to almost any 13-17 year old today.  As funny as it was the fact is he told the truth.  Loved it!  Thanks Ron for the link.
