Poetry in Motion (Pictures) Part 4

Must Love Dogs (Gary David Goldberg, 2005) – Brown Penny, W B Yeats. An amazing oasis of calm in a middling and seriously mediocre John Cusack RomCom, but when Christopher Plummer recites this poem to his daughter, you can hear a pin drop.

I whispered, 'I am too young,'
And then, 'I am old enough';
Wherefore I threw a penny
To find out if I might love.
