Poet Billy Collins Muses on 'Aimless Love'Download audio (MP3)
The New York Times has called him "the most popular poet in America." Former two-term U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins made a name for himself with poems about falling in love and aging, and that reflect the beauty and poignance of everyday life. His latest collection, "Aimless Love: New and Selected Poems," includes work from four of his previously published collections as well as 50 new pieces. He joins us in the studio.
