US Embassy Dublin Hosts Former US Poet Laureate Billy Collins

Via US Embassy Dublin:

US Ambassador Rooney hosted a May reception for former US Poet Laureate (2001-03) Billy Collins at his residence in Phoenix Park.  Mr. Collins was in Ireland for the Galway Cuirt Festival, as well as a follow-on Poetry Symposium at Trinity College. In this video Collins reflects on his favourite Irish poets and speaks about the unique experience of being U.S. Poet Laureate.  Below he also reads one of our favorite poems, Forgetfulness. Some more of his animated poems are online here.

And if you like those, you might also appreciate his I Chop Some Parsley While Listening To Art Blakey’s Version Of “Three Blind Mice”, which might be our all time favorite Billy Collins poem.
