Yes, it is still Poetry Month–all month long!
This blog started out as a film commentary so I thought that I would share a couple of my favourite movies with Poetry Moments.
First, Il Postino, a film about Chilean poet Pablo Neruda on exile in Italy. A local letter carrier, poet at heart, is caught up with the fact that Neruda is there, in his community. He is inspired to make a brief production about metaphors. This small clip from the movie is powerful and unforgettable!
Second on my list would be a clip from teen novel, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton. This moving rendition of Nothing Gold Can Stay by Robert Frost is so moving that one realizes deeply the power of words and poetry.
Happy Poetry Month!!!!
