A time for poetry!

These days I am back to reading poetry, reciting some, and listening to lots and lots of it:-) In case you are in mood for some poetry too, here are two poems of Billy Collins from the NPR site. I liked the one about the lanyard (Yeah! Till I read the poem, I did not know the word). It starts fabulously;
The other day as I was ricocheting slowly
off the pale blue walls of this room,
bouncing from typewriter to piano,
from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor,
I found myself in the L section of the dictionary
where my eyes fell upon the word lanyard.
and, ends, beautifully;
I was as sure as a boy could be
that this useless, worthless thing I wove
out of boredom would be enough to make us even.
