THE LANDING


"Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,

 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 twice:

 That alone should encourage the crew.

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

 What I tell you three times is true."
