There was also a Beaver, that paced on the deck,. And had often the Bellman said saved them from wreck,. There was one who was famed for the number of things. His umbrella, his watch, all his jewels and rings,. And the clothes he had bought for the trip. He had forty-two boxes, all carefully packed,. The loss of his clothes hardly mattered, because.

With three pair of boots—but the worst of it was,. He would answer to "Hi! To "What-you-may-call-um! While, for those who preferred a more forcible word,. His intimate friends called him "Candle-ends,". And that, after all,. Is the thing that one needs with a Snark. And he once went a walk, paw-in-paw, with a bear,. He came as a Baker: but owned, when too late—. He could only bake Bride-cake—for which, I may state,. The last of the crew needs especial remark,. He had just one idea—but, that one being "Snark,".
He came as a Butcher: but gravely declared,. He could only kill Beavers. The Bellman looked scared,. But at length he explained, in a tremulous tone,. The Beaver, who happened to hear the remark,. That not even the rapture of hunting the Snark. It strongly advised that the Butcher should be. But the Bellman declared that would never agree. With the plans he had made for the trip:. And he feared he must really decline, for his part,.
The Beaver's best course was, no doubt, to procure. So the Baker advised it—and next, to insure. This the Banker suggested, and offered for hire. Fit the Second. The Bellman's Speech. The Bellman himself they all praised to the skies—. Such a carriage, such ease and such grace!
Such solemnity, too! One could see he was wise,. He had bought a large map representing the sea,. And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be. So the Bellman would cry: and the crew would reply. But we've got our brave Captain to thank. So the crew would protest "that he's bought us the best—.
This was charming, no doubt; but they shortly found out. Had only one notion for crossing the ocean,. He was thoughtful and grave—but the orders he gave. When he cried "Steer to starboard, but keep her head larboard! Then the bowsprit got mixed with the rudder sometimes:. That frequently happens in tropical climes,. When a vessel is, so to speak, "snarked. But the principal failing occurred in the sailing,. And the Bellman, perplexed and distressed,. Said he had hoped, at least, when the wind blew due East,. That the ship would not travel due West! But the danger was past—they had landed at last,.
With their boxes, portmanteaus, and bags:. Yet at first sight the crew were not pleased with the view,. The Bellman perceived that their spirits were low,. Some jokes he had kept for a season of woe—. But the crew would do nothing but groan. He served out some grog with a liberal hand,. And they could not but own that their Captain looked grand,. They were all of them fond of quotations:. So they drank to his health, and they gave him three cheers,. While he served out additional rations. But never as yet 'tis your Captain who speaks. Have we caught the least glimpse of a Snark!
But a Snark, on the which we might lovingly gaze,. The first is the taste,. Like a coat that is rather too tight in the waist,. That it frequently breakfasts at five-o'clock tea,. It will sigh like a thing that is deeply distressed:. And believes that they add to the beauty of scenes—. It next will be right. Distinguishing those that have feathers, and bite,.
From those that have whiskers, and scratch. Some are Boojums—" The Bellman broke off in alarm,. Fit the Third. They roused him with muffins—they roused him with ice—. They roused him with jam and judicious advice—. When at length he sat up and was able to speak,. And the Bellman cried "Silence! Not even a shriek! There was silence supreme! Not a shriek, not a scream,. As the man they called "Ho!

You may threaten its life with a railway-share;. You may charm it with smiles and soap—'". That the capture of Snarks should be tried! And my heart is like nothing so much as a bowl. And the Baker replied "Let me say it once more.
I serve it with greens in those shadowy scenes,. Fit the Fourth. The Bellman looked uffish, and wrinkled his brow. It's excessively awkward to mention it now,. With the Snark, so to speak, at the door! And the man they called "Hi! But the slightest approach to a false pretence. But the Snark is at hand, let me tell you again! Do all that you know, and try all that you don't:. And you'd best be unpacking the things that you need. Then the Banker endorsed a blank check which he crossed ,. The Baker with care combed his whiskers and hair,.
The Boots and the Broker were sharpening a spade—. But the Beaver went on making lace, and displayed. Though the Barrister tried to appeal to its pride,. Had been proved an infringement of right. While the Billiard-marker with quivering hand. But the Butcher turned nervous, and dressed himself fine,. Said he felt it exactly like going to dine,. Which the Bellman declared was all "stuff. And the Bellman, sagaciously nodding his head,. And even the Baker, though stupid and stout,.
We shall need all our strength for the job! Fit the Fifth. The Beaver's Lesson. They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care;. They threatened its life with a railway-share;. Then the Butcher contrived an ingenious plan. And had fixed on a spot unfrequented by man,.

Then a scream, shrill and high, rent the shuddering sky,. And they knew that some danger was near:. The Beaver turned pale to the tip of its tail,. He thought of his childhood, left far far behind—. This man, that they used to call "Dunce.
His series crackles with clever humor and lots of mystery.
