The Walrus and the Carpenter
Children stories often carry a moral message. This is not a new thing, and has been the case since millennia and across many cultures around the globe. Sometimes, the moral story is not direct, and indeed can be very deep,and sometimes it is enveloped in satire or even cynicist philosophy. One such deeply symbolic and satirical story is Lewis Carroll 's poem of The Walrus and the Carpenter. In his book, Through The Looking Glass , which is the sequel to his Alice in Wonderland , the following story is told. Bu in the Disney animated film, Alice in Wonderland, it appears. Here is an excerpt of the relevant parts from the poem.
They thanked him much for that. And you are very nice! Shall we be trotting home again? One, two! Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
The poem is recited in chapter four , by Tweedledum and Tweedledee to Alice. The poem is composed of 18 stanzas and contains lines, in an alternation of iambic trimeters and iambic tetrameters. The rhyming and rhythmical scheme used, as well as some archaisms and syntactical turns, are those of the traditional English ballad. The Walrus and the Carpenter are the eponymous characters in the poem, which is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee to Alice. Walking upon a beach one night when both sun and moon are visible, the Walrus and Carpenter come upon an offshore bed of oysters.

The precise meaning of the poem remains elusive, but it remains a popular poem and a classic example of Victorian nonsense verse. The sun was shining on the sea, Shining with all his might: He did his very best to make The billows smooth and bright — And this was odd, because it was The middle of the night. The sea was wet as wet could be, The sands were dry as dry. You could not see a cloud, because No cloud was in the sky: No birds were flying overhead — There were no birds to fly. The eldest Oyster looked at him, But never a word he said: The eldest Oyster winked his eye, And shook his heavy head — Meaning to say he did not choose To leave the oyster-bed.
