“Like Alice”

The Song of the Rabbit-Hole:

“Like Alice”

I close my eyes and float away

Over miles to the riverbank,

That long-lost day

When Alice sat in boredom deep.

It took but a little to bring her to leap

Up to her feet in astonishment true,

Watching the rabbit as it fled on cue.

I follow with Alice;

Now her eyes are mine.

Together we fall

With nary a cry

To the bed of the tunnel where dreams shift to life –

Hollow compartments,

Small cubbyholes rife

With wonders and thrills for a young girl to ponder,

Connected by hallways through which we can wander

Till we find that dark queen and her army of cards.

We’ll run on forever –

From home we have fall’n.
