Eugene Field, Sr. was an American writer, best known for his children's poetry and humorous essays. He first started publishing poetry in 1879, when his poem "Christmas Treasures" appeared in A Little Book of Western Verse. Over a dozen volumes of poetry followed and he became well known for his light-hearted poems for children, perhaps the most famous of which is "Wynken, Blynken, and Nod." (Summary from Wikipedia)
