    I couldn't remember the second word of the poem - which has been playing thru my head for months, maybe years, thanks! It's fun to quote the first 3 lines. if you can.

    Family Secrets might be better left secrets. Alice's mother was one of Charles best friends. How old was Alice? Seems her mother had no problem with Charles being with her daughters. So maybe we should just leave this be.

    What is the literary elements in this poem and how do those elements portray the conflict between passion and responbility?

    This poem is a remix of poems by Tennyson and Wordsworth-it was a commonplace of Victorian criticism that Tennyson was Wordsworth's literary heir. Carroll includes references to We are Seven, The Intimations Ode, Lady Clara Vere de Vere, and Locksley Hall.

    Whee, his poems are cool! They are funny and sometimes confusing, but I always like them. Why isn't Humpty Dumpty's Song on here?

Best Poem of Lewis Carroll

Jabberwocky

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

'Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!'

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood a while in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it ...

Melancholetta

With saddest music all day long
She soothed her secret sorrow:
At night she sighed "I fear 'twas wrong
Such cheerful words to borrow.
Dearest, a sweeter, sadder song
I'll sing to thee to-morrow."

I thanked her, but I could not say
That I was glad to hear it:
