Happy Birthday, Billy Collins

Born on this date in 1941, U.S Poet Laureate  from 2001 to 2003, Billy Collins is known as the poet who connects with his readers. An inspiring writer & teacher, his poem “The Names” is the first year anniversary tribute poem to the victims & survivors of 911. Below is my favorite poem of his, “Books”.
