Could atone for that dismal surprise!

That not even the rapture of hunting the Snark

Protested, with tears in its eyes,

The Beaver, who happened to hear the remark,

Whose death would be deeply deplored.

And that was a tame one he had of his own,

There was only one Beaver on board;

But at length he explained, in a tremulous tone,

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!” the Bellman cried,

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

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

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.
