Epilogue To Through The Looking Glass

Rating: 3.2

A boat, beneath a sunny sky
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July --

Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear
Pleased a simple tale to hear --

Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:

Autumn frosts have slain July.

I wish I enjoyed Alice's adventures then I could enjoy this more- it is well written and from the heart, the best I have ever read of his

the epilogue of the story is so sad. The end of a great adventure, and a sad ending to Lewis Carroll's friendship with the real Alice. I absloutely love this poem, saddness and all.
