A Matter Of Opinion

Friday’s Loose Thread

I haven’t been to a wedding in a really long time. Is June still a big month for those? So why am I rambling on like this? Because I can’t think of a clever transition to one of my favorite Ogden Nash poems.

June means weddings in everyone’s lexicon,
Weddings in Swedish, weddings in Mexican.
Breezes play Mendelssohn, treeses play Youmans,
Birds wed birds and humans wed humans.
All year long the gentlemen woo,
But the ladies dream of a June “I do.”
Ladies grow loony, and gentlemen loonier;
This year’s June is next year’s Junior.

So, what’s on your mind today? Feel free to express it in couplets.
