Great Regulars: I wonder how you are going to feel

when you find out
that I wrote this instead of you

is how the first poem begins
in the new book by Billy Collins
called "The Trouble with Poetry."

It is a typical Collins beginning--
a good-natured wave
across the echoing gulf that stretches

from David Orr: The New York Times: Charming Billy
