Ogden Nash poems

The Dog – Ogden Nash

The truth I do not stretch or shove
When I state that the dog is full of love.
I've also found, by actual test, 
A wet dog is the lovingest. 

Grandpa is Ashamed – Ogden Nash

A child need not be very clever 
To learn that "Later, dear" means "Never."

Crossing the Border – Ogden Nash

Senescence begins
And middle age ends 
The day your descendents
Outnumber your friends.

Reflexions on Ice-Breaking – Ogden Nash

is dandy
But liquor
is quicker 

Introspective Reflection – Ogden Nash

I would live all my life in nonchalance and insouciance
Were it not for making a living, which is rather a nouciance.
