They say it's my birthday...

Always Marry an April Girl 

by Ogden Nash
 
Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April golden, April cloudy,
April cold with sudden anger,
April soft in flowered languor,
Ever changing, ever true --
I love April, I love you. 


(Thanks, Mr. Nash. My husband thinks this explains a lot. Not sure he under-
stood what he was getting into. He should have looked for the birthdate on 
my driver's license!)

Thanks so much for sharing this poem. My next door neighbor's birthday is Thursday and I always give her flowers. This year she is getting a card with your poem. Or, I guess it's Ogden Nash's poem that you shared with me.

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday, Kirby (a little late). You know, I always play the Beatles' Birthday song on every family birthday, especially mine. On my day, I play it loud, and I dance all alone in my kitchen.
