Sometimes I think we try to make sense of too much. We should be concentrating on the simple touch of a partner who shares the fantasy with us. That's real!


(With aknowledgments to God and Lewis Carroll)


We walk together hand in hand
through this our magic wonderland.
My 'Alice' simply by my side
(ever since she became my bride),
and every now and then she'll say
"Do you actually know the way?"

"Why on earth would you worry?"
I answer truly as we hurry
to find the magic golden bower
where in some golden light we'll shower
feeling the unconditional maker's love
said to shine from 'up above'.

But will we really ever know
from what source it comes to flow?
If it is Love with a capital 'L'
It surely cannot be from Hell?
For hi-shi who benevolently smiles
already shared our miles and miles...

and lets us choose which earthen path
wherein the Cheshire cat will laugh?
Or where the Hatter sips his tea
where ten and six is half past three?
Where all my eyes can understand
is the magic of 'Alice' ...


... holding my hand.

I'm late to the party - pass the tea Mad Hatter! But yes, I liked this Allen; and it sweet whimsy - in the best possible sense
