“The Lanyard” Analysis “The Lanyard” by Billy Collins, is a poem about a grown man who flashbacks to the day he braided a lanyard for his mother at a camp thinking that making something for his mother will make her happy. Collins uses imagery and tone to illustrate that nothing in this world is enough to repay one’s mother for all that she’s done, but showing one’s love for her will bring joy and laughter into her life. A poetic device Collins utilizes in this poem is imagery. One very good example is when he was thinking about the day at camp. “The other day I was ricocheting slowly off the blue walls of this room, moving as if underwater from type write to piano, from bookshelf to an envelope lying on the floor” (lines 1-4).
