Verse



For thirty years Greg wrote verse for family occasions and "for various applications, most of them broadcast." His model for such productions was certainly the contemporary Grand Master, Calvin Trillin.

Greg contemplated putting out a collection of his occasional verse, entitled Putting on the Doggerel, but he ran out of time. Thus, a few samples, and a link to seven "Rhymes for the Times" that Crosscut published in 2007.
