Alice and the Knight
"You are sad," the Knight said in an anxious tone: "let me sing you a song to comfort you."
"Is it very long?" Alice asked, for she had heard a good deal of poetry that day.
"It's long," said the Knight, "but it's very, very beautiful. Everybody that hears me sing it--either it brings the tears into their eyes, or else---"
"Or else what?" said Alice, for the Knight had made a sudden pause.
"Or else it doesn't, you know."
