    I'm trying to track down 'Oh Greata Game is Besbol for Yong American... which was in a collection by Louis Untermeyer. I'm sure it was by T.A. Daly. looking for an online version that I can send my 92 year old Dad to cheer him up while he recovers in rehab from hip surgery.

    Try tracking down his poem 'Leetla Giorgio Washington.' It's his best dialect poem, the one that started me off writing poetry for the past 55 years!
