Comments: talkin' poetry

Great. Thanks for that Poetry as she is spoke. Not only does it have Famous Seamus as expected of any decent collection, but it also has "Our Les" Murray and Louis MacNiece who I have only just discovered through a book of about 100+ Irish Poems on sale at Readings for about $14. But wait. There's more. The book comes with 3, yes 3 CDs of the poems being read, not by the authors themselves but by other famous Paddies (male and female). Liam Clancy does Yeats 2nd Coming. Seamus Heaney reads someone else's poems.

While we are on poetry don't forget to visit my mate Frank's Poetry here:
