Page 81 - It's the song of a merryman, moping mum, Whose soul was sad, and whose glance was glum, Who sipped no sup, and who craved no crumb, As he sighed for the love of a ladye.
Page 29 - The other night, from cares exempt, I slept — and what d'you think I dreamt? I dreamt that somehow I had come To dwell in Topsy-Turveydom Where vice is virtue — virtue, vice: Where nice is nasty — nasty, nice: Where right is wrong and wrong is right Where white is black and black is white.
