Weekly Scribblings #7 – This is a tribute
For this week’s scribblings, I’d like you to to think about the word “tribute”. You can make your word offering a straightforward tribute to a person, place, or thing you admire, or simply incorporate the idea of tribute in any way you see fit.
Lewis Carroll’s imagination
knew no bounds. From children’s
tales, to riddles, to quizzes,
he could keep you enthralled
far from reality, clues hidden.
Did you go looking for the snark?
Did you find your search in vain?
Alice grew tall, and then so small,
Cheshire Cat appeared and vanished,
but don’t let it tax your brain.
Jabberwocky’s nonsense words
taught a whole new language.
The Walrus and The Carpenter
showed greed and naivetè of
oysters who were eaten in a flourish.
The brilliance of Lewis Carroll
has always fascinated me.
When I need a break from life
I open a book of Carroll’s work.
Soon I’m with Hare and Hatter having tea.
