  1. And to you, Erika.
    Happy Chanukah.

  2. Happy Chanukah, Erika.

  3. My late aunt, the poet Myra Cohn Livingston, published many anthologies nominally for children (along with many books of her own work). One, published in 1986, is Poems for the Jewish Holidays. There are two Hanukah poems in it, Dreidl by J.Patrick Lewis and First Night of Hanukkah by Ruth Roston.

  4. Thank you all for the comments and good wishes. And Anna B, thank you for telling me about your aunt. Perhaps you will want to alert the Academy of American Poets about those poems?
