One night, as I was pondering o'er
Odd books of old, forgotten lore,
My head was strangely overcome
By a gentle, drowsy, sleepy hum.
And yet Ilm sure I didnlt nap
As I beheld these queer things hap.
I saw the dictionary shake,
I must admit my heart did quake.
And then the trembling book did ope
Right then I lost my last faint hopel
The pages quivered, I did, too.
To tell the truth, I was mighty blue.
And now the queerest thing occurred,
The letters on the leaves grew blurred
And suddenly to my astonishment,
By a hideous howl the air was rent.
I know you'll hardly think this true,
But I'll swear to what I say to you-
The very words in that dictionary-
Now, gentle people, please don,t query--
Leaped out of it and began to tremble--
Or maybe dance, for they were very
And now I noticed that they wore
Big coats and hats, and bells galore.
Yes, wore them though 'twas then mid-
And they were dancing to a lively tune.
Conceited words, sophisticated,
Supercilious, quite elatedl
They pranced about in the weirdest way,
Seldom saying what they meant to say,
But getting themselves all mixed and
As they bumped each other, oh, how
By now I was shaking through and
For words sound scary-and they look
At last, I managed to squeak out a bit.
Then lol They acted as though theyld
They screamed and shrilled, then turned
And in their haste cracked many a head.
I saw at once what a fool I,d been
To let them scare me as they'd done
They werenlt half as bad as they looked
Their faces were now as though they'd
By this time all had struck a hot pace.
Then groaning loud each jumped in his
I marvelled then, I marvel now.
I always deeply wonder how
Those many words, so quick and wary,
Leaped headlong in that dictionary,
And found their places, lay right down,
Cast off their clothes, and ceased all
But I know they did-I looked to see.
They were just as orderly as they could be-
Except a few so highly dressed
That, as they rushed, they got all messed.
And so-I caught me up these few-
And put them in this poem for you.
-Fiizlmgh B. ill arsfzall.
