Rachel's Blog: A frabjous poem

Sun, 18 Jan 2004

So I'm spending a lot of time awake in the middle of the night of late which does interesting things to one's brain. A few nights ago I tried to recite a poem to myself.
In Xanadu, I began, did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree
All mimsy were the borogoves
And the mome raths outgrabe.

For the life of me I could not recall two lines to complete the first stanza of either poem. For the record, here's how Kubla Khan and Jabberwocky are supposed to go.
