Such a simple concept. The words of an abbreviated version of Sonnet 12 (“When I do count the clock that tells the time”) have been filmed apparently floating slowly past on the River Avon (it’s hard to tell given the low image resolution, but some trickery is involved since the words then float backwards). The reflected clouds add reflective depth, while the drifting words suggest poetic reverie. It’s just a shame about the naff fretless bass on the music track.
