Quadrille According to Lewis Carroll

My response to Björn Rudberg’s challenge in Quadrille


Alice was acquainted with the intricate rules

Of formal ballroom dancing, particularly quadrilles.

Thus she was not disconcerted, bewildered or bemused

By curious events that would otherwise confuse

When sea creatures joined together in their pairs,

Took to the floor and danced in squares.
