    Family Secrets might be better left secrets. Alice's mother was one of Charles best friends. How old was Alice? Seems her mother had no problem with Charles being with her daughters. So maybe we should just leave this be.

    What is the literary elements in this poem and how do those elements portray the conflict between passion and responbility?

    This poem is a remix of poems by Tennyson and Wordsworth-it was a commonplace of Victorian criticism that Tennyson was Wordsworth's literary heir. Carroll includes references to We are Seven, The Intimations Ode, Lady Clara Vere de Vere, and Locksley Hall.

    Whee, his poems are cool! They are funny and sometimes confusing, but I always like them. Why isn't Humpty Dumpty's Song on here?

A Nursery Darling

A Mother's breast:
Safe refuge from her childish fears,
From childish troubles, childish tears,
Mists that enshroud her dawning years!
see how in sleep she seems to sing
A voiceless psalm--an offering
Raised, to the glory of her King
In Love: for Love is Rest.
