Sonnet by Bill Knott

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

Found via a Bill Knott feature issue at Salamander Cove. I’m not crazy about the piano here (“Meditation Impromptu 1” by Kevin MacLeod), but otherwise it’s a well-done video, and I love the poem. The teenaged videographer goes by the handle MusicalMarionette on YouTube. For more on Bill Knott, see HTML Giant, and check out his Collected Poems on Lulu.

    I like the piano background but wish it were more in the background. It’s too loud and therefore competes with the reading of the poem, instead of enhancing it. I wish that the volume on the music track had been lowered.
