Poem Thursday - Ogden Nash

I went to D7's first grade Valentine's Day party this afternoon. They recited several poems for us (yes, at their party) including this one:


Celery ray
Develops the jaw,
But celery, stewed,
is more quietly chewed.

Yes. That is my poem for you for today. I wish you could have seen those little cuties reciting it, sitting at their desks with their Valentines cookies and treats in front of them. I wanted to hug all of them.

I adore Ogden Nash. And to think of first graders reading him makes me happy.

Oh that's so cute! My poor little first grader didn't get to have his V-day party (what with being snowed in and school cancelled for a week and all that)!
