Ogden Nash

(August 19, 1902 – May 19, 1971 / New York / United States)

Always Marry An April Girl


Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true --
I love April, I love you.

    I married an April girl, named April. This poem was in collection of poetry that was given to us as a wedding gift from some friend's of April's family. It has obviously been very special to me for almost 30 years now. (Report) Reply

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
