A Sea Dirge

Rating: 3.3

There are certain things - as, a spider, a ghost,
The income-tax, gout, an umbrella for three -
That I hate, but the thing that I hate the most
Is a thing they call the Sea.

Pour some salt water over the floor -
Ugly I'm sure you'll allow it to be:
Suppose it extended a mile or more,
THAT'S very like the Sea.

Beat a dog till it howls outright -

The great classic poet was also a finest author of the world famous story of Alice In Wonderland, how amazing! So had he described this dirge of the sea, he liked anything but not that sea, a lovely sea dirge. I lost my way here so now I can just respond

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. If we had no difference of opinion, just think how ordinary and gray life would be

Some fantastic lines in your poem I liked it I try the rocks, and I think it cool That they laugh with such an excess of glee, As I heavily slip into every pool That skirts the cold cold Sea.
