Take a poem and add a whole collaboration of musicians and actors and all the people and locations and props it takes to make a film.

It thrills me, the thought of all that effort and time by all those people, young and old, focused in on one poem. It makes me want, well, something - maybe get some of my dialogues acted out, have a scene put into song, or at least form a poetry study group of some sort. Anyway, here's the video.
