NPM: The Daily Poem

All month I'll be posting a poem a day. (Sometimes just under the wire, like today.)

For April 1 we have Ogden Nash.

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.

Ogden Nash
