Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After spending its first season on CBS' Friday and Wednesday night schedule, Leave It to Beaver launched its second season on a new night (Thursday) and a whole new network (ABC). In the opener, Beaver (Jerry Mathers) is assigned to write a poem for a school class. He goes to his dad Ward (Hugh Beaumont) for just a little bit of help. Carried away by his muse, Ward ends up composing the entire poem -- and does Beaver go on a guilt trip when that poem wins a prize! This episode was originally identified as "Poetic Justice" in the pages of TV Guide.
