Some Opposites — a Frog Hollow Crankie

After a steep technical learning curve, I have a Frog Hollow Crankie* for you all. This is one we made to the poem “Some Opposites” by Richard Wilbur. We memorized this poem, and had a great time with it. It’s got a great rhythm, which helps make it easy to memorize, and it’s funny to boot.

I recorded this at home, so it’s just me performing it. Imagine ten enthusiastic young voices….

*A crankie is a moving panorama that accompanies a song, story, or poem, and is called a crankie because you crank it.
