A well spaced post!

Thanks so much to my lovely friend Helen of Helz-Design for helping me with making sure all future pieces of blogged poetry come with correct spacing, verses will be seperated as intended by poets from now on.  Here is a link to Helen’s very helpful blog piece about spacing, it’s so simple – Space along the Sea.

Today I’m sharing a Lewis Carrol classic, I love the sounds the words make, hope you enjoy it too.

JABERWOCKY

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogroves,
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!’

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought –
So rested he by the Tumtum tree’
And stood a while in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood’
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

‘And thou hast slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’
He chortled in his joy.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgabe.

Lewis Carroll 1832-98

I hope you can find some thing to make you chortle with joy today!

  1. Spacing is critical in blogs- and filigree!
    Now, you are a master (mistress?) of both!
