The Reward

(1980)

In "The Reward," Frank Lewin sets a text of Ogden Nash, the first song in his song cycle A Musical Nashery.

The Reward
by Ogden Nash


In my mind's reception room
Which is what, and who is whom?
I notice when the candle's lighted
Half the guests are uninvited,
And oddest fancies, merriest jests,
Come from these unbidden guests.
