"Jabberwocky" by Lewis Carroll

OrderVerse
A1'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
A2Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
A3All mimsy were the borogoves,
A4And the mome raths outgrabe.
B1"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
B2The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
B3Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
B4The frumious Bandersnatch!"
memorize

 

OrderVerse
C1He took his vorpal sword in hand:
C2Long time the manxome foe he sought—
C3So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
C4And stood awhile in thought.
D1And as in uffish thought he stood,
D2The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
D3Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
D4And burbled as it came!

OrderVerse
E1One, two! One, two! and through and through
E2The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
E3He left it dead, and with its head
E4He went galumphing back.
F1"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
F2Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
F3O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
F4He chortled in his joy.
G1'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
G2Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
G3All mimsy were the borogoves,
G4And the mome raths outgrabe.
