All mimsy -were the borogoves, And the mome vaths outgrabe.
" Beware the Jabberwock, my son I
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch ! "

Long time the manxome foe he sought—•
So rested he by the Tumturn tree, And stood awhile in thought.
