I participated in a reading this winter in which participants were challenged to recite a poem by another poet. I picked one of my favorites, Lying in a Hammock at William Duffy’s Farm in Pine Island, Minnesota by James Wright (here if you’d like just the text). Below is my rendition via video. I have no idea what I said to make people laugh as this video starts, and I guess we never will. I think that’s terrific.
