Tribute to Light Verse


“The hunter crouches in his blind

‘Neath camouflage of every kind

And conjures up a quacking noise

To lend allure to his decoys.

This grown-up man, with pluck and luck,

Is hoping to outwit a duck.”

~~Ogden Nash

“God in His wisdom made the fly,

And then forgot to tell us why.”

~~Ogden Nash

“Middle age is so much more

Than wrinkles on our faces.

It’s when broad minds and narrow waists

Begin exchanging places.”

~~Charles Ghigna
