Toddler recites Shakespeare

A two-year-old recites William Shakespeare’s sonnet 18. Even if he drops lines, he deserves at least as many views as a three-year-old reciting a Billy Collins poem.

Update, March 13: Summer’s lease hath all too short a date. The video has been removed from YouTube.

My pleasure. But I like the Billy Collins one too, though not as much. I guess it's all about the material.

The Billy Collins poem is fun, I’ll admit. But it makes my teeth hurt when I see him get attention that should go to better poets.

I wonder whether the parent(s) who posted sonnet 18 had second thoughts about putting their kids in front of the world. I can’t blame them if they did.
