"Here is a breathing body and a beating heart,/ strong legs, bones and teeth,/ and two clear eyes to read the world". Those lines from "The Lanyard" might serve as an epigraph for this very welcome new collection of recent and selected poems from Billy Collins. The wordsmith the New York Times called "the most popular poet in America" has gained and kept that status because readers know that his poems are clear reflections, not knotty conundrums. This fresh batch doesn't disappoint.
