“Winter in Fenway (Sonnet 97)”: A Cinematic Poem Promo Short Film For Boston Red Sox By DGA Productions (2014)

“Winter in Fenway (Sonnet 97)” is a Cinematic Poem Promo Short Film For The Boston Red Sox By DGA Productions.

How like a winter hath my absence been   From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!   What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!   What old December's bareness everywhere!   And yet this time remov'd was summer's time,   The teeming autumn, big with rich increase,   Bearing the wanton burthen of the prime,   Like widow'd wombs after their lords' decease:  Yet this abundant issue seem'd to me   But hope of orphans and unfather'd fruit;   For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,   And thou away, the very birds are mute;   Or if they sing, 'tis with so dull a cheer   That leaves look pale, dreading the winter's near.

Sonnet 97 by William Shakespeare
The Sun Rising by John Donne

How like a winter hath my absence been
From thee, the pleasure of the fleeting year!
What freezings have I felt, what dark days seen!
What old December’s bareness everywhere!
And yet this time remov’d was summer’s time,
The teeming autumn, big with rich increase,
Bearing the wanton burthen of the prime,
Like widow’d wombs after their lords’ decease:
Yet this abundant issue seem’d to me
But hope of orphans and unfather’d fruit;
For summer and his pleasures wait on thee,
And thou away, the very birds are mute;
Or if they sing, ’tis with so dull a cheer
That leaves look pale, dreading the winter’s near.

Narration adapted from excerpts from “Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad (1899).

“The smell of mud, of primeval mud, by Jove! was in my nostrils, the high stillness of primeval forest was before my eyes; there were shiny patches on the black creek. The moon had spread over everything a thin layer of silver—over the rank grass, over the mud, upon the wall of matted vegetation standing higher than the wall of a temple, over the great river I could see through a sombre gap glittering, glittering, as it flowed broadly by without a murmur. All this was great, expectant, mute, while the man jabbered about himself. I wondered whether the stillness on the face of the immensity looking at us two were meant as an appeal or as a menace. What were we who had strayed in here? Could we handle that dumb thing, or would it handle us? I felt how big, how confoundedly big, was that thing that couldn’t talk, and perhaps was deaf as well. What was in there?”
