I Saw The White Knight Shining In A Farther Dream

to Lewis Carroll

I saw the white knight shining in a farther dream

said Alice, over the turnstile and he was not
as broken as before mused Alice.

I have no defense, he said.

and bowed his head where the silver birds
had nested forgetting how to sing oh so
at home.

have you wandered too? he asked me.

how could I say when I saw the castles in the distance
not that far away
