Poetry & Cartoons

As I kid, Sunday morning was all about cartoons. Long, hazy mornings that seemed to stretch endlessly… episodes of Dastardly & Mutley, Batfink & Karate, Voltron, He Man and the Masters of the Universe, Rocky & Bullwinkle and one of my favourites… the Wacky Racers:

So this morning, longing for a good cartoon (and they are hard to find these days), I decided to post of my favourite animated poems… so sit back, let the morning stretch and the inner child kick its way to the surface.

The Language by Robert Creeley
Now and Then by Billy Collins
Poem beginning with a line by Frank Lima by Lisa Jarnot

and this absolute gem…

  1. Oh…how I loved Rocky and Bullwinkle….hey…but I didn’t see George of the Jungle on your list…why? πŸ™‚ Enjoyed your post.

  2. Love ‘Now and Then’ – this was a treat- thx, G

  3. I’ve seen the Bukowski before, Bluebird is one of my favourite poems is His. Billy Collins is brilliant, and has registered on the NYTimes best seller list (as a poet!). I heavily recommend you listen to this mashup by Phil Retrospector, with Harry Dean Stanton reading. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c05MhfO64ss
