Alice in Wonderland ~ Vintage Storybook Image

by Julie J on August 31, 2014

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

Quaint Alice trailed the rabbit, dressed
So strangely in a coat and vest
And at the bottom of the hole,
Had many more adventures droll;
By tasting “Drink Me” she grew smaller,
By sipping something else, was taller;
She met the Duchess, Cheshire Cat,
The Mad March Hare and folk like that,
She stirred her tea and played croquet,
In court had nothing right to say,
And when it all began to seem
Mixed up, discovered ’twas a dream. Alice in Wonderland printable, vintage storybook illustration, alice and the rabbit, vintage fairy tale graphics, alice in wonderland poem, alice in the forestThis vintage poem and storybook illustration of Alice in Wonderland in a forest, stopping to look at a rabbit in a red coat, is from Fairy Tales by Rose Allyn, illustrated by G. M. Burd and Violet Moore Higgins. The book was published in 1918.

GOING TO SEE GRANDMAMMA.

Are walking so far,
For they’re going to see
Their kind Grandmamma.

And they very well know,
When they get there she’ll take
From out of her cupboard
Some very nice cake. Kate Greenaway, Marigold Garden, Victorian storybook illustration, Going to see Grandma, vintage mother and children pictureAnd into her garden
They know they may run,
And pick some red currants,
And have lots of fun.

Says, “How do you do?”
And asks hims mamma
If he may not go too.
