Bookshelf: Billy Collins


I'm really looking forward to Ballistics, the new book of poetry by Billy Collins. A distinguished professor of English at Lehman College of the City University of New York, Billy Collins was Poet Laureate of the United States from 2001 to 2003 and Poet Laureate of New York State from 2004 to 2006. You can read some of the poetry in Ballistics here.

Oh, I love Billy Collins! I just had him out the other day to reread "Afternoon with Irish Cows"!

Isn't he great? I just ordered Ballistics today, and I'm eagerly looking forward to getting it next week!
