April Girl

I missed posting last Friday because I was out of town. So here it is, a couple days late. Also last week - my birthday! I celebrated by hunting up a poem my husband gave me when we were dating. He didn't write it himself, but it's probably the most romantic gift he every gave me.

Here it is:

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 (1902 – 1971)

Makes me want to cry! In a good way, of course.

Until next Friday...

Joy Nash
