Billy Collins is one of my favorite contemporary poets. His writing is always crystal-clear, yet many-layered. A couple years ago I featured one of his poems, Man Listening to Disc, in my “Take a Stanza” series. A couple days ago I discovered (via 37signals) a little gem of a site that accompanies 11 Billy Collins poems with gorgeous animation.
The site is billy collins action poetry. Even if you’re not a big poetry fan, you ought to check it out. Edit 2022-08-05: The site no longer exists
