Bill Murray reads Lucille Clifton poem on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Legendary actor and comedian Bill Murray kicked off National Poetry Month by reading and discussing Lucille Clifton's poetry on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Regarding the recent feature in O, The Oprah Magazine, in which Bill Murray excerpts some of his favorite poems, Jimmy Kimmel says: "I have to say, poetry is not something that I ever read, but when I read these excerpts that you came up with, they all seemed great to me. This one in particular is great: 'What the Mirror Said.'"

Nodding in agreement, Murray says of Lucille Clifton: "Her stuff's unbelievable. It's just incredible and I didn't know it until someone had given me this book. It's really gigantic stuff. And that one's beautiful, but then when I started reading her book I was just blasted by it. It's really something."

Released by BOA in 2012, The Collected Poems of Lucille Clifton 1965-2010 is available now at the BOA Bookstore.
