Poetry Sunday: Forgetfulness by Billy Collins
The former poet laureate Billy Collins is one of the most popular American poets writing today. It's easy to see why. He writes poetry that is very accessible and that has a wry and gentle humor. It's poetry that often references everyday events in people's lives, thus it is poetry that ordinary people can relate to and appreciate. It's poems like this one that talks about something which many of us experience as we get older. See if you recognize yourself here.
