The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright–
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.
Sound familiar? Yes, it’s “The Walrus and the Carpenter” today… but how many of you readers know that Disney butchered it?
The link I’ve given points to the original which also happens to come from “Through The Looking Glass“, not “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland“. (Both now in the public domain. If you’d like to read them online, see the external links section of the Wikipedia articles) At the very least, read the original poem.
