In Nine Horses, Billy Collins, America’s Poet Laureate for 2001–2003, continues his delicate negotiation between the clear and the mysterious, the comic and the elegiac. The poems in this collection reach dazzling heights while being firmly grounded in the everyday. Traveling by train, lying on a beach, and listening to jazz on the radio are the seemingly ordinary activities whose hidden textures are revealed by Collins’s poetic eye. With clarity, precision, and enviable wit, Collins transforms those moments we too often take for granted into brilliant feats of creative imagination. Nine Horses is a poetry collection to savor and to share.

Amazing collection of poems! For non-poetry reading friends, I'd say read this, now. There's no rhyme, no difficult language, no pretentious ideas, just simple language from a regular guy. Billy Collins captures the basic feelings we all have and words them with a sweet frame of reference.
