Comments about Ogden Nash

  • Milla Elphaba (10/12/2006 4:49:00 PM)

    Mr.Nash delivers quite nicely
    making use of comedy and also being a bit ice-y
    He puts it down bluntly
    and some poems are quite stunt-ly

    131 person liked.
    81 person did not like.

    I liked couple of poems of Mr Nash which i read.

  • Julia Nicholls (4/24/2006 5:49:00 PM)

    Ogden Nash was quite funny
    Using words that were quite pun-ny
    Instead of writing poems that had no strife
    He could have gone out, and got himself a life

  • Kimberly Kastner (4/22/2006 2:28:00 PM)

    I like his poem 'The Tale Of Custard The Dragon.' So cute!

  • Lawrence Scrivener (3/23/2005 12:34:00 AM)

    What a clever persona was Ogden Nash,
    Expounding his truth as well as his trash.
    Some works proffered wit,
    Some others pure grit,
    With most saturated in balderdash.

Best Poem of Ogden Nash

A Word To Husbands

To keep your marriage brimming
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.

Read the full of A Word To Husbands

The Solitary Huntsman

The solitary huntsman
No coat of pink doth wear,
But midnight black from cap to spur
Upon his midnight mare.
He drones a tuneless jingle
In lieu of tally-ho:
“I’ll catch a fox
And put him in a box
And never let him go.”
