'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!" Jabberwocky Jabberwocky
Little Trotty Wagtail Little trotty wagtail he went in the rain, And tittering, tottering sideways he neer got straight again, He stooped to get a worm, and looked up to get a fly, And then he flew away ere his feathers they were dry. Little trotty wagtail, he waddled in the mud, And left his little footmarks, trample where he would. He waddled in the water-pudge, and waggle went his tail, And chirrupt up his wings to dry upon the garden rail. Little trotty wagtail, you nimble all about, And in the dimpling water-pudge you waddle in and out; Your home is nigh at hand, and in the warm pig-stye, So, little Master Wagtail, I'll bid you a good-bye. John Clare The Little Trotty Wagtail The Little Trotty Wagtail
I They went to sea in a Sieve, they did, In a Sieve they went to sea: In spite of all their friends could say, On a winter's morn, on a stormy day, In a Sieve they went to sea! And when the Sieve turned round and round, And every one cried, 'You'll all be drowned!' They called aloud, 'Our Sieve ain't big, But we don't care a button! we don't care a fig!

Roger McGough - Home extract from A FINE ROMANCE Excuse me darling, in advance for the slow, macabre dance I may one day lead you into. Holding you too tight for comfort and whispering endearments, if I should call you by another's name, a lover's perhaps, from years ago, don't be startled. It's just a slip of the moonlight. © Roger McGough That Awkward Age Penguin Permission to reproduce in any format must be secured from PFD. http://www.pfd.co.uk/books/permissions_requests.shtml Roger McGough - Home
