Acrostic

Acrostic

Little maidens, when you look
On this little story-book,
Reading with attentive eye
Its enticing history,
Never think that hours of play
Are your only HOLIDAY,
And that in a HOUSE of joy
Lessons serve but to annoy:
If in any HOUSE you find
Children of a gentle mind,
Each the others pleasing ever
Each the others vexing never
Daily work and pastime daily
In their order taking gaily
Then be very sure that they
Have a life of HOLIDAY.



Poem Acrostic - Lewis Carroll
