A Race Of Angels, Bound With One Another; A Dish Of Dollars Laid Out For All To See

"City Trees"

The trees along this city street,
Save for the traffic and the trains,
Would make a sound as thin and sweet
As trees in country lanes.

And people standing in their shade
Out of a shower, undoubtedly
Would hear such music as is made
Upon a country tree.

Oh, little leaves that are so dumb
Against the shrieking city air,
I watch you when the wind has come,--
I know what sound is there.

-Edna St. Vincent Millay

Speaking of tilt-shift video, and tangentially of borderline sociopathic boys, you might like the BBC's Sherlock series. The cut scenes are tilt-shifted London; everything else is just brilliant.
