My reading of Edgar Allan Poe with images and music. I did this on Windows Movie Maker and recorded the reading as I played the music, so forgive the end where the fade out is odd. I did not want to play the whole piece which is quite long, but tried to fade out somewhere natural. Here are the words of the poem:
Helen, thy beauty is to me
Like those Nicean barks of yore
That gently, o'er a perfumed sea,
The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.
On desperate seas long wont to roam,
Thy hyacinth hair, thy classic face,
Thy Naiad airs have brought me home
To the glory that was Greece,
And the grandeur that was Rome.
Lo, in yon brilliant window-niche
How statue-like I see thee stand,
The agate lamp within thy hand,
Ah! Psyche, from the regions which
Are Holy Land!
