Poetry Friday: Billy Collins

"Bugs Bunny is my Muse." - Billy Collins

For more great lines like this, plus Billy Collins reading six of his poems, five of them set to animation, check out this video:

Just what the doctor ordered after an afternoon of conferences. I'm ready for the weekend.

Here's today's Poetry Friday roundup.

I got to hear Billy Collins speak a few months ago, he was hilarious. I guess I was surprised that a Poet Laureate could be so funny!

Ruth, thanks for this link.

I just now found out that I missed Billy Collins speaking locally yesterday (and my first reaction: gotta go tell Ruth The Poet :^). Had I read the e-newsletter from the bookstore when it was first sent, I would have known. It would have been hard to get there (transportation issues) and I would have missed something else I attended instead. I guess I'll have to be content with watching this video instead! No yellow dress here.

Finally watched it - fun!

My favorite 14yo boy pointed out that Schubert probably didn't help out around the house, because they probably had servants, so it wouldn't be proper.
