A disappointment, frankly, for those who count on Ogden Nash for the light and witty touch. At times he gets positively long-winded and verbose; his rhythms and meters were always all his own, but there was a march and beat to them which he has lost in many of these new ""poems"". Can it be he is trying to join the taggers on the heels of Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg, and has misplaced that inimitable sense of fun somewhere on the way? It emerges, now and then, but it takes some deep sea fishing to find it. However, it is Ogden Nash, so will sell.
