    Lewis Carroll isn't one to languish on the shore extolling the beauties of the sea- -no, it is obvious that he has been at sea and did not like it one bit. This is what a real writer does- he expresses his thoughts and his emotions not those of his audience.

    Some fantastic lines in your poem I liked it

    As I heavily slip into every pool
    That skirts the cold cold Sea.

    Ooh, I very much dislike this poem. I remember just reading of a reference to one of his poems. He must be a very good poet, nevertheless. (Report) Reply
