In the May 1973 Kickshaws, Dave Silverman commented how much he enjoyed my Ballad of the Evergreen State (subtitled Ilwaco Million Miles for One of Your Smiles), the first ten verses of which were quoted in the May 6, 1972 Saturday Review. Subsequently, the editor wrote me asking permission to share the poem with Word Ways readers.
