A Sea Dirge - Poem by Lewis Carroll

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

    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 (Report) Reply

    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.

    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
