The Walrus and the Carpenter

14 May

This is the Lewis Carol Poem translated from English through a few languages via google translate and back into English.   For the original: The Walrus and the Carpenter

A little bit amusing.

The sun is shining star of the sea;
Brilliant for all possible:
He strives
Billows smooth and shiny
And it was weird because it was
Middle of the night.
The moon was shining sulkily,
Because he thought Sun
If a business
After the day –
“It is very unpleasant for him,” she said,
“To come and spoil the fun!”

The sea was wet as wet could be,
Sands were dry as dry.
You can not see a cloud, because of
No clouds in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead –
There were no birds to fly.
Walrus and the Carpenter
Walk at hand;
They wept like anything to do
Such quantities of sand:
“If passed,”
He said, “It would be fabulous!”
“If seven girls with seven mops
He swept a half years.
You, “the walrus said, to think,
“May they be?”
“I doubt it,” Carpenter said,
And a bitter tear.
“O Oysters, come and join us!
Praying walrus.
“A pleasant walk, a pleasant thing,
Sea along the beach:
We can not exceed four,
Lend hand to each. ”
The eldest Oyster looked at;
But he never said a word:
A wink to the older eye Oyster,
And shook his heavy head –
This means it has chosen not to leave
The oyster bed.
But young Oysters hurried four;
To deal with all odd:
Their coats were brushed their faces washed,
Their shoes were clean and neat –
And it was strange, because, you know,
They had no legs.

Four other Oysters followed them,
And yet another four;
And thick and fast they came at the end;
More, more, more –
All jumps through the frothy waves,
And scrambling to the shore.

Walrus and the Carpenter
I went a mile or so,
And then they rested on a rock
Oysters and all permanent
And while running.

“The walrus said,” The time has come
“To talk of many things:
Shoes and ships and sealing wax –
And kings – of cabbages –
And why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings.
“But wait,” the oysters cried,
Before “we have our chat;
Some of us are out of breath,
And we’re all fat! ”
“Carpenter said quickly.
“A loaf of bread,” the walrus said they like that.

“What we need mostly:
Pepper and vinegar besides
Are really great –
Now you’re ready, Oysters dear,
We can begin to feed. ”

“But we!” Oysters cried,
Turning a little blue.
“After such kindness, can be
A sad thing to do! ”
“Beautiful night, the walrus said.
“What do you admire the view?

“It was nice of you to come!
And you are great! ”
Carpenter said nothing but
“Cut us another slice:
I wish you were not completely deaf –
I had to ask twice! ”

“It’s a shame,” the walrus said,
“To play them such a tower;
After we brought this day,
And coming so fast! ”
Carpenter said nothing but
Spread butter too thick! ”

“I am for you, the walrus said:
“I really pity.”
With cries and tears he sorted
Those big,
Taking his handkerchief
Before his eyes streaming.

“O Oysters,” said Carpenter,
“You had a pleasant run!
Often we travel should be at home again? ”
But answer came there none –
And this was scarcely odd, because
They all ate.
