The second assignment for my Web Essay class was to create a slideshow narrated by a poem. I knew that most students in my class would work with deep, serious poems, so I chose to do the opposite, instead working with a silly Shel Silverstein poem. I chose The Unicorn, slightly altering the words to fit the supplies I was working with. The full video can be seen here.

A long time ago, when the Earth was green
There was more kinds of animals than you’ve ever seen
They’d run around free while the Earth was being born
But the loveliest of them all was the unicorn
