My Mistress When She Walks Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed by CD Morrish 2017

“Sonnet 130” by William Shakespeare 

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.

“Sonnet 44”  by William Shakespeare

“If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth removed from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought
I must attend time’s leisure with my moan,
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either’s woe.”

Filmed in Helsinki, Finland

“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.
