A Game Of Fives - Poem by Lewis Carroll

Five little girls, of Five, Four, Three, Two, One:
Rolling on the hearthrug, full of tricks and fun.

Five rosy girls, in years from Ten to Six:
Sitting down to lessons - no more time for tricks.

Five growing girls, from Fifteen to Eleven:
Music, Drawing, Languages, and food enough for seven!

Five winsome girls, from Twenty to Sixteen:
Each young man that calls, I say "Now tell me which you MEAN!"

Five dashing girls, the youngest Twenty-one:
But, if nobody proposes, what is there to be done?

Five showy girls - but Thirty is an age
When girls may be ENGAGING, but they somehow don't ENGAGE.

Five dressy girls, of Thirty-one or more:
So gracious to the shy young men they snubbed so much before!


Five PASSE girls - Their age? Well, never mind!
We jog along together, like the rest of human kind:
But the quondam "careless bachelor" begins to think he knows
The answer to that ancient problem "how the money goes"!

    Perfect! This poem must have been as fun to compose as it is to read. I enjoy the various ways in which Carroll describes the five girls' ages at the start of each stanza. I've been thinking a lot about the stages of life that a female passes through, because now I'm entering Passe. Time to step aside and make room for the new generation of dashing, showy, and dressy ladies. Such is the rhythm of Life. Bittersweet, indeed. (Report) Reply
