JACOB - Lewis Carroll Poems


Poems » lewis carroll » jacob


He dwelt among "apartments let,"
    About five stories high;
A man I thought that none would get,
    And very few would try.

A boulder, by a larger stone
    Half hidden in the mud,
Fair as a man when only one
    Is in the neighborhood.

He lived unknown, and few could tell
    When Jacob was not free;
But he has got a wife, -- and O!
    The difference to me!
