‘The Mouse’s Tale’

by Lewis Carroll3290f14056e4c0e79c265a408ee6b2c8

‘Fury said to
a mouse, That
he met
in the
house,
‘Let us
both go
to law:
I will
prosecute
you.—
Come, I’ll
take no
denial;
We must
have a
trial:
For
really
this
morningI’ve
nothing
to do.’
Said the
mouse to
the cur,
‘Such a
trial,
dear sir,
With no
jury or
judge,
would be
wasting
our breath.’
‘I’ll be
judge,
I’ll be
jury,’
Said
cunning
old Fury;
‘I’ll try
the whole
cause,
and
condemn
you
to
death.’ ‘

November marks 150 years since Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ was first published. Surrey Libraries is hosting a number of events to mark the occasion, the image used at the top of the page is the result of William Lawrence’s drawing workshop.

Throughout the month we’ll be posting various poems featured in and associated with the story – such as poems about cats (but only if they’re smiling), time or rabbits.

We’d love to hear yours.

NB: Any self written poems will be credited to you unless you specify otherwise. We cannot guarantee which poems will be included but will try to include as many as possible.
