I'm not a poetry appreciator, but I always liked Ogden Nash. He was a favorite of my father, and I think that's where the book I found on the shelf must have come from. It took me four months to read this book, a poem or two or three at a time, and then I was surprised when at last I came to the final poem. The poetry really didn't float my boat, but I do admire Nash's whimsey and cleverness of rhyme.
Frederic Ogden Nash was an American poet well known for his light verse. At the time of his death in 1971, the New York Times said his "droll verse with its unconventional rhymes made him the country's best-known producer of humorous poetry".More about Ogden Nash...
