A boy named Alice fell down a tree
Bumping his head one, two, three
Chasing a hunch he got up and ran
Searching all over being a little man.
“Seeling a castle he began to cry
What now do I do, how do I try?”
Then came along a little white horse
Who said quite gruffly “just follow your course.”

So waving goodbye Alice dashed off
Continuing along until he came to a loft
“Hey,” he called out, “anyone there?”
But when nothing came he moved on without care.
Still he continued to search far and wide
Up, down and to every side
He sat down by a mountain holding his head
“Don’t cry dear boy or you’ll turn into lead.”

Alice looked up to see there a man
“Oh no,” he said “will I become a can?”
“Of course not at all, you’ll be a tin
“But mind you,” he said, “you may end up a pin.”
“Who are you?” Alice asked,” please help me now”
“Just look to the left, do you see that cow?”
“Yes,” said Alice, seeing the beast
“Just give it a pat at the very least.”

So Alice went up and approached the cow
Hoping dearly it didn’t smell foul
Reaching out he gave it a little pat
Then with a crunch the big cow spat.
Alice turned back to talk to the man
But alas as he thought he only saw a pan
“Perhaps he cried and turned into lead
“Oh what shall I do?” Poor Alice said.

“Just go to the clouds and find a speck.”
Alice did turn to see a girl with a neck
“Who are you?” he asked, “and what speck is this?”
“A speck with a smile and do call me Lis.”
“The clouds are too far,” complained the boy
“But I am a fairy and I am not coy
“I will fly up there and you will come too”
“Oh yes please,” he cried and up they flew.

Higher and higher they went into a cloud
“Where is this speck?” he said really quite loud
“Just look and look you will find it I know”
So he searched and searched wondering if he were low.
Something small floated into his sight.
“I’ve found it,” he cried in such delight.
“Eat it,” she said “and you will be well.”
So he put it in his mouth and down he fell.

Falling and falling churning down the sky
At that moment he wished he could fly.
“I’ll hit the ground that won’t be fun.”
And with his last words he wanted a witty pun.
But when the ground came he just bumped soft
“That wasn’t so bad,” he said with a cough
Still Alice though did not know what to do
He was following a hunch but all he heard was a coo.

Looking afar he saw the birds in a group
He wondered then if he’d done a loop
But he knew he had not, there’d been no birds before
None of it was familiar not even the caw.
Sitting down almost in tears
This was becoming his biggest fear
A stranger alone in this place he didn’t know
He very dearly wished hoped nearby there was no foe.

“Oh what shall I do?” He cried with his might
He put his head on his knees and something caught his sight
Dust covered his shoes so gave them a shake
“At least I can look nice” and then he felt a quake.
Something was shuddering far far below
“What can it be now?” and he expected a foe
But nothing appeared and the quaking went on
Our boy now wondered if it would go on for long.

He closed his eyes out of desperation and fear
“I want to go” he cried loud and clear.
The quaking then stopped and Alice took a look
No shaking, just quiet, not a thing shook.
And then he looked around and cried with delight
“I’m back, my house, oh what a pretty sight”
So with our boy Alice running round the bend
He reached his house and that was the end.
