Without the least vestige of land:

He had bought a large map representing the sea,

The moment one looked in his face!

Such solemnity, too! One could see he was wise,

Such a carriage, such ease and such grace!

The Bellman himself they all praised to the skies—

Fit the Second : The Bellman’s speech

And appeared unaccountably shy.

Par ordre chronologique

 

 

The Hunting of the Snark

An Agony, in Eight Fits

Fit the First: The Landing.

As he landed his crew with care;

Supporting each man on the top of the tide

By a finger entwined in his hair.

Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:

“Just the place for a Snark!” the Bellman cried,

“Just the place for a Snark!” I have said it twice:

That alone should encourage the crew.

What i tell you three times is true.”

The crew was complete: it included a Boots..

A maker of Bonnets and Hoods..

A Barrister, brought to arrange their disputes..

And a Broker, to value their goods.

A Billiard-maker, whose skill was immense,

Might perhaps have won more than his share..

But a Banker, engaged at enormous expense,

Had the whole of their cash in his care.

There was also a Beaver, that paced on the deck,

Or would sit making lace in the bow:

And had often (the Bellman said) saved them from wreck,

Though none of the sailors knew how.
