Phyllis McGinley: Rockin' the Suburbs

Back in the 60s when poets could actually be famous, there was Phyllis McGinley, a happy housewife, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet who even made the cover of Time. You've probably never heard of her. I hadn't, until I read a Dec. 24, 2008 article about her in the New York Times. She died the year I was born. Coincidence? Well, yeah. But still.

Some of her poems are posted online, but I haven't been able to verify them thus far.
