Midnight Mad(Hatter)ness

Illustration by Fernando Falcone

Tiptoe through the trees by the silver moonlight
The Mad Hatters' party is happening tonight
Come straight to the table and pull up a chair
Some interesting people are going to be there
The Rabbit, the Dormouse the Cheshire Cat
Alice and the Hatter, wearing his new hat
You wont fall asleep for there's too much to see
With "Eat Me" cupcakes and some "Drink Me" sweet tea
There's magic and mystery and curious suspense
There's giggling and folly and lots of nonsense
Bring imagination for this special date
It's starting at midnight and please don't be late!

Elaine - great rhyme in the retelling of a classic, but with a sweet warmth that - well, it makes me feel invited. I won't be late! ☼
