I enjoyed the poem Seaside Serenade by Ogden Nash The poem is about how the writer doesnt like the seaside The poem is written in rhyming couplets The writer starts talking about the smell like whenever you are on the way to the seaside you will always tend to smell it before you actually see it because it has that distinctive odd fishy smell Throughout the poem the writer concentrates on some of the senses The next sense he goes onto talk about is sight The poet is trying to say when you go to the beach its like everyone is packed He means its like everyone is all squashed up together sunbathing And the sun seems paler and colder Compared to vermilion face and shoulder The writer says this because everyone has been sunbathing and the sun has made their face and shoulders sun burnt Vermilion is a very funny exaggeration Athletic young men uncover their torso In the virile way the maidens adore so The writer is saying that all the men with their six packs and huge muscles are going around showing them off so the ladies can see their figure The rhyme is odd and amusing While paunchy uncles before they bathe them In voluminous beach robs modestly swathe them In this quote the writer is saying that the fat men go right down to the sea edge and then eventually go and take off their towels and go into the sea This is probably because they had seen the men with their perfect figures and then compared themselves When he says that the ladies on the beach look like something out of a medical book I think this means that theyre extremely ugly and a bit disfigured This was sarcastic but funny Now the writer goes onto say Last not least consider the kiddies Chirping like crickets and katydiddies Hes saying that the kids are jumping
