An Alice Alphabet - Poem by Carolyn Wells

A is for Alice a-dressing the Queen.
B is for Borogoves, mimsy and lean.
C is the Cheshire Cat, wearing a grin.
D is the Duchess who had a sharp chin.
E is the Eaglet who barred out long words.
F, the Flamingo, the queerest of birds.
G is the Gryphon, loquacious and gay.
H, Humpty Dumpty in gorgeous array.
I is for Insects with curious names.
J is the Jabberwock burbling with flames.
K is the King who was whizzed through the air.
L is the Lobster who sugared his hair.
M, the Mock Turtle, whose tears freely flowed.
N is for Nobody seen on the road.
O is for Oysters who trotted so quick.
P is the Puppy who played with a stick.
Q is the Queen who ran very fast.
R is the Rabbit who blew a great blast.
S is the Sheep, on her knitting intent.
T, Tweedledum, with his noisy lament.
U is the Unicorn, valiant in feud.
V is the Violet, saucy and rude.
W, the Walrus, addicted to chat.
X, Executioner, seeking the cat.
Y is the Youth Father William surveyed.
Z is the Zigzag the mouse's tail made.
