Ahh Billy Collins
Billy Collins made it cool to write poems that you could access easily, read in one sitting, and walk away feeling like you had read something profound. He also makes you know, without a doubt, that you could be a poet too.
This is the first book of poetry I have ever purchased, and I felt proud to know and love this collection. I have read it twice now, and I enjoyed every one. Mr. Collins turns an ordinary activity into a profound revelation. Pick up any of his books, google his name, find him on poetr.com. He is always magnificent. Go ahead, you can be a poet too. Swoon.
