I enjoy the poems of Billy Collins for their straightforward style, wonderful wit and generous humor. In reading this poem for the first time I found myself nodding and smiling over the wonderful twist he throws in at the end. The poem never gets old to me and always brings a sense of delight. What better book to make then one that brings one joy!
