Life is but a Dream
by Lewis Carroll

A boat, beneath a sunny sky; 
Lingering onward dreamily; 
In an evening of July.

Children three that nestle near; Eager eye and willing ear; Pleased a simple tale to hear.

Long has paled that sunny sky; 
Echoes fade and memories die;
 Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise;
 Alice moving under skies
; Never seen by waking eyes.

Children yet, the tale to hear;
 Eager eye and willing ear;
 Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie; 
Dreaming as the days go by;
 Dreaming as the summers die;

Ever drifting down the stream; 
Lingering in the golden gleam;
 Life, what is it but a dream?
