Ray Bradbury video reading a poem

This is how a poet should read his/her poetry. In the video on the side bar, the late science fiction writer, Ray Bradbury, laughs at himself and has the audience in his hands before he reads a wonderful poem he wrote about space.

I couldn't agree more, Glenda. As I've said before, I tend to dread a poet's reading. But the poem itself is such a treasure as well!

Hi Glenda, I'm afraid I couldn't get the video of Ray Bradbury to work. When I clicked on the link, it took me right back to your blog. This doesn't surprise me since Blogger has been giving me fits all week, ever since I switched my blog to Wordpress.

Anyway, I found Ray Bradbury's obituary, and it was interesting. The only book of his I read was Farrenhite 451, and it's one of those classics you read and never forget.

Yes, Joan, a poor reading of one's poems is sad, especially when the poetry is good.

This poem is great.
