Just for the fun of it, here’s a sample of John’s schoolwork.  He handed in this English assignment when he was 14: it included a few short original ditties, but was mostly a collection of his favorite poems, lettered by hand, and embellished with a few drawings and photos.  His taste ran to limericks, Christopher Morley, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Edgar Guest.  Looking at this little booklet, it’s hard to believe that a mere three years later, he would be working as a professional writer — and editing a poetry magazine in NYC!
