November


I spiral down,
an autumn leaf.
Soon to become
yesterday's dirt
or tomorrow's soil.

    I didn't know/remember this (probably very famous) passage from Alice in Wonderland. Very nice!

    1. If you plan to (re)read the book, I recommend this edition introduced by Richard Kelly.

  2. I think this conversation is incomplete without this line:

    "Only a few find the way. Some don't recognize when they do, some don't ever want to."

    1. Is this line in the original text by Carroll? I feel it was introduced by someone else (perhaps in American McGee's Alice?) because I can't remember reading it. But it is a great addition nonetheless.

    2. Yeah, its in McGee's Alice. Both his renditions A:MR and American McGee's Alice build wonderfully on top of the world Lewis had created.
