Poetry Friday

A happy Friday to one and all. This Poetry Friday's entry concerns, well, poetry. And, it comes from the brilliant and funny Billy Collins. Here is the second half of "Introduction to Poetry":

I want them to waterski
across the surface of a poem
waving at the author's name on the shore.

and torture a confession out of it.

to find out what it really means.

Love it! To read the first half of the poem, head on over to
This week's round-up will take place at HipWriterMama. Head on over and leave her your links!
