Always Marry An April Girl
Added by: Caroline
As the hundredth anniversary of Nash's birth approaches, I am hearing discussion of his poetry on a locally produced radio program. According to what I just heard, this poem was inspired by his wife's HAVING been born in April.

Nash was a favorite poet in my family, and his work was a subject of study in my ninth grade English class, when the teacher did a "section" on humor.

As I don't encounter references to him often, these days, I hope there will be a revival of interest in his work.

Yay! I first encountered his poetry as a child (I was a book nerd :D ) and loved it! Then I came across 'Always Marry an April Girl' and was so excited that a poem had been wrote with my name in! Not lengthy but is really from the heart. I learnt this off by heart and read it at school because I loved it so! (I was only 6, leave me alone!) But yes... As you can tell I babble when I talk about things I like!
