A Famous Tea Party
Astonished Alice finds a rabbit hole.
Adventure’s down below, behind a door.
Her FOOTPRINTS echo down a hall, quite cold.
A GROUP OF ELVES now hide beneath the floor.
And magic’s here: she sees a pooka flee!
An errant rabbit doomed to be quite late.
A bottle states: “Please, will you drink of me?”
A WILLOW TREE now bends and swings, irate.
A cup of tea to warm Mad Hatter’s flight;
A GOLDEN APPLE to assuage the Queen.
A MANUSCRIPT is mull`ed oer her plight
as all are wearing boutonnieres supreme!
A naughty, ORANGE cat grins ear to ear.
A HAUNTED PEN; well-PLUMED, this script sincere.
