Jabberwocky
by Lewis Carroll
   'Twas brilling and the slithy toves
      Did gire and gimble in the wabe:
   All mimsy were the borogroves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
    
5   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:
10      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,
15   Came whiffling through the tugey 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
20      He went galumphing back.
    
    
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
   Oh frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
      He chortled in his joy.
    
   'Twas brilling and the slithy toves
25      Did gire and gimble in the wabe;
   All mimsy were the borogroves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
