April is National Poetry Month and we found a video of a little boy who would make a great poster child for the occasion.  Watch video posted to YouTube by the three-year-old’s mother below:

The boy is reciting “The Litany” by Billy Collins.  His mother posted the video about three years ago, explaining her son loved poetry and memorization.  Now, at age 6, the boy continues his love of poetry and is understanding the messages contained within much better.

The mother insisted that even though her son didn’t understand what he was saying three years ago, it was good to expose him to it.  Now, he has a love for it that’s growing stronger each year.

The video has garnered more than 730,000 views and elicited more than 1,300 comments.
