Not only is April Poetry Month, it's also National Humor Month

So let us combine the two pleasures and read some poetry that makes us laugh!

Also known as light verse, humorous poetry has long been a practiced form. From cowboys to columnists, from Chaucer to Silverstein, humorous poetry has plenty to offer. Here is a small list of collections of humourous poetry.

And as a small aperitif:

 Always Marry an April Girl by Odgen Nash

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