What will your verse be??

▶ Apple – iPad Air – TV Ad – Your Verse – YouTube.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering – these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love – these are what we stay alive for.

To quote from Whitman,

“O me, O life of the questions of these recurring. Of the endless trains of the faithless. Of cities filled with the foolish. What good amid these, O me, O life? Answer: that you are here. That life exists and identity. That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

    “That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

I of course am a die-hard “Dead Poet’s Society” movie fanatic, and when I saw the latest iPad Air commercial that featured a snippet from the movie I was quite excited.

Here’s the original clip from the movie:

It’s no secret. I watched A LOT of movies as a kid. During the greatest decade ever, also known as the 80’s, I probably watched almost every B-rated movie flick released. I still haven’t grasped the concept that this is not something I should be bragging about?

To make matters worse, I’m pretty sure I watched all of those movies at least a dozen times or more since then. So I’ve become quite the connoisseur of movie dialogue.

Just ask my wife (as evidenced by the included Pin from Pinterest that she so-happened to send me).
