  • A BOAT beneath a sunny sky,
    Lingering onward dreamily
    In an evening of July --
    Children three that nestle near,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Pleased a simple tale to hear --
    Long has paled that sunny sky:
    Echoes fade and memories die:
    Autumn frosts have slain July.
    Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
    Alice moving under skies
    Never seen by waking eyes.
    Children yet, the tale to hear,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Lovingly shall nestle near.
    In a Wonderland they lie,
    Dreaming as the days go by,
    Dreaming as the summers die:
    Ever drifting down the stream --
    Lingering in the golden dream --
    Life, what is it but a dream?

    THE END

    A BOAT beneath a sunny sky,
    Lingering onward dreamily
    In an evening of July --
    Children three that nestle near,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Pleased a simple tale to hear --
    Long has paled that sunny sky:
    Echoes fade and memories die:
    Autumn frosts have slain July.
    Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
    Alice moving under skies
    Never seen by waking eyes.
    Children yet, the tale to hear,
    Eager eye and willing ear,
    Lovingly shall nestle near.
    In a Wonderland they lie,
    Dreaming as the days go by,
    Dreaming as the summers die:
    Ever drifting down the stream --
    Lingering in the golden dream --
    Life, what is it but a dream?

Lewis Carroll – A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky | Genius

A Boat beneath the sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July —
Children three that nestle near,

Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear —
Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:

A steady stream
of golden dream
incline your ear
incline and hear

And followed by
the dark blue sky
don’t close your eyes
it’s still July

Autumn frosts have slain July.
Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.

Life, what is it but a dream?
Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.
