by Billy Collins


"Sailing Alone Around the Room: New & Selected Poems" is a great introduction to Billy Collins' poetry. Billy Collins writes accessible poetry. His poetry speaks of everyday life with his unique laugh out loud humor. His poetry is universal, clever and perceptive. He is an American poet who was National Poet Laureate 2001-2003. My favorite image from this work, a heavy coat is the weight of history and frantically searching the pockets to make sure no battles or a queen has dropped out into the snow. I highly recommend this book. I encourage you to find him on YouTube reading aloud his poetry. Experience him for yourself.
