    The roots

    I was deeeeep in the hole when I came across these roots and I was suddenly transported back to my childhood reading.................


    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought--
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! and through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
    He chortled in his joy.

    'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    Lewis Carroll

    ..................and I realised they were the roots of the Tumtum tree............Of Course!

    Peter - a brilliant depiction of the roots of the TumTum have made Lewis Carroll proud... really a fine exploration

    I like all Your posts very much, but since Your production is high rate and Your quality always top class, I tend to limit comments to some most spectacular masterpiece of Your which stroke particularly my imagination and pleasure receptors. This is one of those absolute wonders in my opinion!

    A great and fitting tribute to L.C!
