A poem I wish I'd written....


I find the poem Forgetfulness deeply reassuring. Funny, and oh, how true! It's four minutes into this clip.

  4. The more I am exposed to Billy Collins (metaphorically speaking, of course), the more I appreciate him. I knew "Forgetfulness" already, but the other two, "January in Paris" and "Ballistics", were new to me. Thank you, Frances, for expanding my ever-shrinking world.

    1. I'd never heard of him until I heard him on the radio, RWP. He's brilliant, isn't he?
