Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll

(just realized I should post it as a result of Regularity. And then realized I only left it as a comment. So now I have like four versions of this up (blushes))

It's Collaboration page: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/26324

It's wiki page with cool definitions for the words. This would be SO fun to illustrate! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jabberwocky

I'd really like to take this on. We need a good reading of it. Joe? Anyone?



****************


'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
