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.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:

Ever drifting down the stream --
Lingering in the golden gleam --
Life what is it but a dream?

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.
