Good day, Mr. Hatter

Why oh dear, what’s the matter?

What could be so bad,

as to make you sad,

on a day so bright and new?

Good day, Mr. Hatter,

perhaps if I sit with you I can,

make you laugh, and make you smile,

and sometime in that while,

draw you out of your dark and dreary mood.

Good day Mr. Hatter, yes I’d love a cup of tea!

Though I cannot quite understand,

why that involves your hand upon my knee,

or why you’re so insistent,

on holding hands with me.

But you’re right,

it is rather nice,

and is that a smile I see?

Good day, Mr. Hatter, what is that you say?

A kiss upon my cheek?

I suppose it could cause no harm,

no need for any alarm.


Oh my!

You missed my cheek and kissed my lips!

And I must say, how dare you sir!

You awful cad,

you rogue, you rake,

you unmitigated cur!

Good bye Mr. Hatter, for now I take my leave,

and no talk of shining smiles,

shall weaken my resolve.

And no mentions of missing me,

will cause my tears to fall


Perhaps I could just sit a while,

And have another cup of tea or two.

At least until again I may see you smile,

and we shall see,

if it might just be possible,

for an Alice girl like me,

to love a Hatter as mad as you
Yes, a sequel to my unexplainably popular poem, "Hello, Alice girl" which can be found here [link]

This is from the same scene as the first poem, but this, obviously, is told from Alice's point of view. I honestly don't know if poems ever have sequels, except for some Shakespearean sonnets, and various verses by Poe and Robert Frost, I don't actually read much poetry. So really, my knowledge is somewhat limited.

Whatever the case, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as they did "Hello, Alice girl."

Disclaimer: Alice in Wonderland is not mine, obviously, and neither are the characters of Alice or the Mad Hatter.

Edit 2010: I have a Formspring page now, feel free to ask me questions of any sort, I'll probably answer them: [link]

i smiled when i read this, it cheered me up.
i don't suppose you could maybe do more on this pairing?
EmmyScarlet Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2010
Yeah...honey, half the stuff in my gallery is Hatter/Alice, including an ongoing series called "Beyond the Laughing Sky".

In other words, yeah, I think I could probably do more. Just go take a look, and I think you'll find something, lol.

Wonderful, I love the story in this and how it parallels 'Hello, Alice girl'. This just flows so well, and is so sweet!

You awful cad,
you rogue, you rake,
you unmitigated cur!

Eehehehheeeee that's my favorite when she acts that way. I admire those who can pull off poetry well, since I'm certainly no good at it. Thank you for making me smile, with this and all your other works. :D
EmmyScarlet Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2007
Hee, it's totally my favorite part too. Of course, I love any excuse to use phrases like "unmitigated cur."

And your work always makes me smile, so it's a fair trade.
InnocentThought Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007
Even though I never commented on your other poem, I think this one and that one are very lovely. They sound so nice and make great imagery in my head. I wish I could draw something for them but it may be beyond me...
EmmyScarlet Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2007
Pshaw, I love any excuse for fanart. Besides, the "Valentine" pic turned out adorably.
BA101 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007  Student General Artist
A SEQUEL! I happy xD

This is also very very good. Though it cannot beat the original!
codelyokorox Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007
Now, this one I like.
