Christmas Legends, A, 1967
Phyllis McGinley was born March 21, 1905, in Ontario, Ore., and died
February 22, 1978, in New York, NY. She was a poet, essayist, and writer of
children's stories. She describes her Colorado childhood as wild and wooly.
After attending college in Ogden, Utah, she got a teaching job in New Rochelle,
NY. When her poetry began selling regularly to magazines, she moved to
Manhattan. She married, and was delighted at becoming a housewife-writer. It
was McGinley who wrote, at age 6: "Sometimes in the evening When the sky is red
and pink I love to lie in the hammock And think and think and think."
