Flights of Fancy
Birds are an inspiration to mystics, scientists, poets and artists. Here, the poet and artist join in an inspired collection of poetry spanning from the ancients to the postmoderns. Former Poet Laureate Billy Collins has anthologized some of the finest, and occasionally lesser-known, poems about our winged friends and matched them with illustrations by the contemporary nature artist David Allen Sibley. This is a perfect gift item for the lover of poetry or birds.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Billy Collins has such a great eye for the unique and subtle, the charming and funny in our feathered friends. I laughed, I cried, I was inspired to think more deeply about these friends of ours that have individual gifts for the world.
There are many treasures here, most of which were unknown to me. It is a great set of love letters to natures singers and hoppers and jokesters.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
