Paul Simon Honored By Poetry Society Of America

SFGate reports Paul Simon's latest honor came from the Poetry Society of America, which celebrated him Tuesday during a dinner benefit at the New York Botanical Garden.

Simon and longtime poetry editor Alice Quinn were the guests of honor, their careers both lasting for decades and making them revered names among lovers of words.

Simon was introduced by former U.S. poet laureate Billy Collins, who noted that Simon was among the first rock songwriters to use the word "poetry" in a song.
