LIFE IS BUT A DREAM

by: Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)

      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?
