Collection of poems, very well read

This collection of poems is read by 2 narrators. Each reads several poems in a row. Both are excellent and the switching between the male and female voices keeps it interesting. This is an audiobook I listen to in small segments. I don't normally read poetry for pleasure and this is a nice poetry interlude occasionally on my commute in between other audiobooks or when I just want a change of pace. Both narrators are easy to understand.
