Good Poems

Selected and Introduced by Garrison Keillor

I've been really into Garrison Keillor for the last few months. I've moved from listening to his monologues to learning jokes from his ridiculous CDs, much to my family and friends' chagrin.

For the vacation, I skimmed his entire collection of poetry. These are my favorites that I want to come back to:

Letter to N.Y. by Elizabeth Bishop p35
Poem to Be Read at 3 A.M. by Donald Justice p73
The Constant North by J.F. Hendry p105
Happiness by Raymond Carver p149
A Little Tooth by Thomas Lux p176
Sometimes by Sheenagh Pugh p 215
The Three Goals by David Budbill p225
Passengers by Billy Collins p291
The Sixth of January by David Budbill p315
