By A Swimming Pool Outside Syracusa - Poem by Billy Collins

All afternoon I have been struggling to communicate in Italian with Roberto and Giuseppe, who have begun to resemble the two male characters in my Italian for Beginners, the ones who are always shopping or inquiring about the times of trains, and now I can hardly speak or write English.

    here we are, just imagine the scene with roberto and giuseppe, chissà che si saranno detti, but this poem so humorous is quite serious reflection about language, instead (and great laughing pleasure, also) (Report) Reply

    And this site has the copyright license to publish Collins' poems, I take it? Saying 'we'll take it down if he asks us to' is to act in bad faith. (Report) Reply

    After struggling to communicate with family members today I turned to poetry and found this. Humorous, calming, clever. Thanks, Billy. (Report) Reply
