Alice Has Never Been
Here have we China,
And here have we: Alice.
Alice has never been in China,
China never has had Alice;
These rooms never had Alice,
These rooms are not in China.
These rooms never had Alice.
Alice, Alice, crying to the stars,
A while ago, alone;
Alice, Alice, looking at her breakfast,
Moodily, considering last night, what
Alice, Alice, in a new gown, the best
Have you been in China, have you been
Have you been in China, Alice in your
the best one
China, which waits for you,
China, which has waited millions of years.
