Frederic Ogden Nash was born in 1902 in Rye, New York.
This American humorist was educated at Harvard University, and his comical and nonsensical verses are what made him famous. Puns, rhymes, asymetrical lines, and amusing parenthetical statements were what made Nash's verses amusing and magical.
Some primal termite knocked on wood And tasted it, and found it good, And that is why your Cousin May Fell through the parlor floor today.
God in his wisdom made the fly And then forgot to tell us why.
