A poem which tells the story of Gentle Alice.


One of the things that I love most about this poem is the way in which it is laid out on the page. The entire thing takes the shape of a teacup with a wisp of steam coming from the top. The perfect poem and imagery to start off a collection of stories based around Alice in Wonderland.

Although this is a short, sweet and concise poem, it bares the wordplay and interplay that I loved throughout Carroll’s works. It is one of those multilayered stories that I will read again and again and again whenever I need to quickly be transported away to another world. And it will continuously reveal new, fun and intriguing meanings. Actually… I think I’ll go and read it again right now…
