Video: Al Gore’s Snowy Poetry Reading

Here is Al Gore’s dramatic poetry reading from his appearance on CBS’s Early Show in December. Some special effects may have been added:

Since it’s kind of hard to hear the audio, here’s the words to Gore’s “bleak climate change poem”:

One thin September soon

A floating continent disappears

In midnight sun

Vapors rise as

Fever settles on an acid sea

Neptune’s bones dissolve

Snow glides from the mountain

Ice fathers floods for a season

A hard rain comes quickly

Then dirt is parched

Kindling is placed in the forest

For the lightning’s celebration

Unknown creatures

Take their leave, unmourned

Horsemen ready their stirrups

Passion seeks heroes and friends

The bell of the city

On the hill is rung

The shepherd cries

The hour of choosing has arrived

Here are your tools

A Huffpo writer said the poem was “one that Yeats might have been proud of”…Rush said it was “stupid”.

Mare in the comments said, “It blows”.

Hat tip: My hubby, who made the video for me.
