Baby on her lap, she wrote and wrote

"With the coming of the babies," wrote Laura Richards, a Pulitzer Prize winner and author of "Beauty and the Beast," and endless children's rhymes and poems. "I wrote, and sang, and wrote, and could not stop. The first baby was plump and placid, with a broad, smooth back which made an excellent writing desk. She lay on her front, across my lap; I wrote on her back, the writing pad quite as steady as the writing of jingles required."

Laura's poem Eletelphony is featured in "I Need a Kazoot."
