Billy Collins is cool.

Writer Suet Fun introduced me to former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins I must say that his video readings got me hooked. Check him out and you'll see why New York Times calls him "The most popular poet in America" .

PS: I think these animated poetry make good learning tools too!

Forgetfulness is playful and wistful, and the video is perfectly matched to the reading. Love it!

Here's another one: Some Days

I love how a single moment or a fleeting thought is amplified in a few lines, stretched to encompass so much emotion.
