3 Year Old Recites Poem, “Litany,” by Billy Collins

Three year olds can wreak havoc on a home, and the precocious ones can recite poetry too. Here we have a toddler reciting Billy Collins’ poem “Litany” (find text here) and also some lines from Lord Alfred Tennyson (while dressed as Superman, of course).

    What? Who is anyone to know or to say what poetry is “about”. Only a pretentious 20 something would utter such nonsense. It is language and life and this child is both!
