A friend — a newspaper columnist in Pittsburgh — shared to all her friends on Facebook this 32-minute video of Billy Collins reading.

Samantha’s comment: “This is a long ball — half an hour, if you watch the whole thing — but well worth whatever time you can give it. It includes my favorite poem, “Litany,” and another brilliant one, “Lanyard.” Don’t fear a dose of poetry. This guy is FUNNY.”
