    A 1-L lama, he's a beast, A 2-L lama, he's a beast, but I will get a silk pajama, there isn't any 3-L lama. (From memory from about 1953)

  • Jean Portner (11/10/2018 12:58:00 PM)

    Old poem but I love it and can only remember the first part

  • Deborah Connolly (11/1/2018 8:50:00 AM)

    One f my ekementary school teachers; a graduate of Boston Teacher's college quoted Ogden Nash one morning when I was a student in the early 60's about - no birds, no bees; no wonder November...I stll remeber that mornng poem but not all the words. Can anyone direct me to all the words of Ogden Nash's poem about November?

    He found that rhyme is needed all the thyme
    But rhythm ythm!

  • Cynthia (9/28/2018 4:09:00 AM)

    poem that ends because in spring I get hay fever

  • Jim Traynham (9/13/2018 9:12:00 AM)

    Poem about “lamas” that mentions three kinds: a one el lama (holy one) , a two el llama (animal) , and a three el lama (3 alarmer) . Can you find it?

  • Albert Walsh (9/6/2018 10:58:00 AM)

    I am looking for the source of “you stop in to have a few beers, the next thing you know there go 37 years.” Sounds like Nash and I’m almost sure it is but can’t find it.

    I remember an fitting editorial epitaph,
    all good things must come to pass...
    and so it is with Ogden Nash
    I think he would have liked that.

    I love the work of Ogden Nash. I would like to read a Poem About New York City that I found to be Homorous

Best Poem of Ogden Nash

Adventures Of Isabel

Isabel met an enormous bear,
Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;
The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous.
The bear said, Isabel, glad to meet you,
How do, Isabel, now I'll eat you!
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry.
Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.
Once in a night as black as pitch
Isabel met a wicked old witch.
the witch's face was cross and wrinkled,
The witch's gums with teeth were sprinkled.
Ho, ho, Isabel! the old witch ...

Old Men

People expect old men to die,
They do not really mourn old men.
Old men are different. People look
At them with eyes that wonder when…
People watch with unshocked eyes;
But the old men know when an old man dies.
