Falling in Love with Lewis Carroll
 
Lewis C.

That picture, on the back of a book.
I'll never forget.
I was thirteen
he would have been 134.

I'll never forget
that he would have been 134,
born in the wrong year,
Time's plaything.

He would have been 134
with such a sensitive face.
Time's plaything,
I'd fallen for a dead man.

Such a sensitive face,
such gentle hands.
I'd fallen for a dead man.
That picture. On the back of a book.
