    “Denslow’s Mother Goose”, is, of course, by W. W. “Hippocampus” Denslow, best remembered as the original artist of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

    Those of us who remember Zork instantly know that these aren’t “Tree People”—they’re terrifying Christmas-Tree Monsters! Quick! Has anybody got a caterpillar?

    I’m 68, too, and I remember.

    English hates haiku.Syllables, like April snowMelt and flow away.

    The question is whether Parker and/or Hart had read Волшебник Изумрудного города (“The Wizard of the Emerald City”), Alexandr Volkov’s Russian translation/revision of “The Wizard of Oz”, one of the most popular children’s books in the former Soviet Bloc since it came out in 1939. In that book, the tornado that carries Ellie (Dorothy) to Magic Land (Oz) was deliberately raised by the Wicked Witch of the East to destroy the world, but it was turned against her by the Good Witch of the North.

    It was about this time that Frank Lloyd Wright’s plan was published, featuring an automobile that had four wheels, one in the nose with the steering gear, two, one on either side of the cabin, and a spherical “wheel” supporting the rear.

    My fake toy camera at about this date squirted water. Worked better with only one victim.

    Actually, this year (2016), the cherry blossoms were out on New Year’s Day. (No joke; I was there.)

    Part 2. In the middle of the space, there was a four-trunked tree, with just such a platform as this, and just such a ladder. No one knew where it had come from, but we spent a lot of time up there.

    In 1961, alas, the space was taken over by the city, and was used to build a new high school, and (again) an athletic field.

    Part 1. Back when I was a kiddy-wink in Waterville, ME, the neighborhood boys (not so much the girls, but this was the 50s, after all) used to play in a huge empty lot. None of us knew that it had been the athletic field of the local prep school, abandoned when the footbridge linking it to the campus was lost in a storm back in the 30s. (There were the remains of a racetrack, but we had no idea what it had been for.)
