Poem: Combing The Beach In Winter

Subtitled: Beachglass Jewelry Set with Matching Poem

Bits of colored glass

With edges smoothed by time

While our love was growing
While our flowers were blooming

Shatoetry with William Shatner!

Every word you select is dragged and dropped anywhere on the page, which is a wonderful background image of William Shatner. You can select from several backgrounds, each with Bill in a different pose to complement various styles of delivery. And speaking of delivery, every word you select has three distinctly different oral renditions recorded by Mr. Shatner, allowing you incredibly creative license with his famously recognizable voice.  Now you can make Captain Kirk say just about anything, and he will wrap it all up in a wonderful video for you to share with everybody!

So here’s my first request of the Captain, and which I remorsefully dedicate to my failing short term memory:
