DPF / Collins

For all the readers out there and for those readers headed back to work after any summer vacation, I hope you got to enjoy some great summer reads, from poets.org.

from Dear Reader / by Billy Collins

Baudelaire considers you his brother,
and Fielding calls out to you every few paragraphs
as if to make sure you have not closed the book,
and now I am summoning you up again,
attentive ghost, dark silent figure standing
in the doorway of these words.
