My wife and I just got back FROM a wedding where this poem was read, as part of the ceremony. Very serious funniness, this act of marriage, a bookmark in all our lives.

'Larnt' is just 'learnt' spelt so that it rhymes with 'aren't'.

My daughter selected this poem to be read at her wedding. She wed an Irishman and much of their four year courtship was spent traveling between the U.S. and Ireland. Ogden Nash spoke to their love when he wrote: "Near and far, near and far, I am happy where you are." Now they are toghether and Ogden Nash will always hold a place in all of our hearts.
