Billy Collins- Poet Laureate

My favourite clothes company. Nearly New Cashmere posted a poem last week by Billy Collins. I looked him up and thoroughly enjoyed a couple of youtube videos he made. He was the Poet Laureate of the United States 2001-2003. Dubbed the most popular poet  in America by Bruce Weber of The New York Times. 

Read Aimless Love- fun and witty and  one of my top poems now...
