My Most Favourite Living Poet Poem by Sylvia Frances Chan

My Most Favourite Living Poet

Rating: 5.0

I admire Bill Collins
his poems
his touch of humor
his charity deeds
his love for words
his great ability
to create aids (not the disease! but as organization)
for people with a low budget
especially schoolkids
he teaches in New York
The Bronx
that says all about him.
I am not born in the USA, but I know what that means
if you are born in The Bronx
if you are a teacher in the Bronx
or even a professor,
his best friend is Bill Murray the actor
Bill Murray has humor in his films but also in his private life
so is Bill too
Bill is almost one decennia older than Bill the actor

Bill Collins gives his poem for educational use
the pupils nor the schoolheads need not to pay

(part 2 of comment) I have also written a few poems about him. One of them got an honorable mention in a contest of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies a few years ago. Thanks for sharing this.

Sylvia, Billy Collins is one of my favorite poets also. He has written at least ten books of poetry and I have read five of them.
