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.
This 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.
