    Not a favorite poem, but Poetry Magazine is trying to get people to a "Record-a-Poem," on Soundcloud.

    I found this cute and heartwarming.

    I've never picked up the art of reading poetry out loud, and now it's just awkward.

    Just today I was introduced to the poetry of Matthew Dickman, and I'm rather enjoying what I've read and heard so far.

    Here he is reading one of his poems "Slow Dance".

    Disobedience

    BY A. A. MILNE

    James James
    Morrison Morrison
    Weatherby George Dupree
    Took great
    Care of his Mother,
    Though he was only three.
    James James
    Said to his Mother,
    “Mother,” he said, said he:
    “You must never go down to the end of the town,
    if you don’t go down with me.”


    James James
    Morrison’s Mother
    Put on a golden gown,
    James James
    Morrison’s Mother
    Drove to the end of the town.
    James James
    Morrison’s Mother
    Said to herself, said she:
    “I can get right down to the end of the town
    and be back in time for tea.”


    King John
    Put up a notice,
    “LOST or STOLEN or STRAYED!
    JAMES JAMES
    MORRISON’S MOTHER
    SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN MISLAID.
    LAST SEEN
    WANDERING VAGUELY:
    QUITE OF HER OWN ACCORD,
    SHE TRIED TO GET DOWN TO THE END
    OF THE TOWN—FORTY SHILLINGS
    REWARD!”


    James James
    Morrison Morrison
    (Commonly known as Jim)
    Told his
    Other relations
    Not to go blaming him.
    James James
    Said to his Mother,
    “Mother,” he said, said he:
    “You must never go down to the end of the town
    without consulting me.”


    James James
    Morrison’s mother
    Hasn’t been heard of since.
    King John
    Said he was sorry,
    So did the Queen and Prince.
    King John
    (Somebody told me)
    Said to a man he knew:
    “If people go down to the end of the town, well,
    what can anyone do?”

    (Now then, very softly)

    J. J.
    M. M.
    W. G. Du P.
    Took great
    C/o his M*****
    Though he was only 3.
    J. J.
    Said to his M*****
    “M*****,” he said, said he:
    “You-must-never-go-down-to-the-end-of-the-town-
    if-you-don’t-go-down-with ME!”
