"in spring when the woods are getting green,
i'll try and tell you what i mean:
in summer when the days are long,
perhaps you'll understand the song:
for this must ever be
kept from all the rest
between yourself and me."
"but alice had got so much into the way
of expecting nothing but out-of-the-way things to happen
that it seemed quite dull and stupid
for life to go on in the common way...
put cats in the coffee, and mice in the tea-
and welcome queen alice with thirty times three!"
