Who doesn’t love Billy Collins, the former US Poet Laureate? The actor Bill Murray reads his poetry at construction sites. Adorable toddlers recite his poetry from memory. And now artists have created animated videos that bring 11 Collins poems to life. You can find the animated version of “Budapest” above, and the remaining poems at Billy Collins Action Poetry. And, as a quick aside: Collins was interviewed just this morning on Forum with Michael Krasny. You can listen to the mp3 right here.
Thanks Robin for the great find!
