This a Tone poem about two of the mythical characters found in the poems. See the link below (after the poem) for the piece.
I have used GPO and JABB and a couple of other libraries in this one.
In the poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll, (That piece of music can be found here http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...ad.php?t=63623) the following line is found:
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
The Jubjub bird is further described in his "The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits)"
These are the relevent sections of that poem.....
Then a scream, shrill and high, rent the shuddering sky
And they knew that some danger was near:
The Beaver turned pale to the tip of its tail,
And even the Butcher felt queer.
He thought of his childhood, left far behind-
That blissful and innocent state-
The sound so exactly recalled to his mind
A pencil that squeaks on a slate!
"'Tis the voice of the Jubjub!" he suddenly cried.
(This man, that they used to call "Dunce.")
"As the Bellman would tell you," he added with pride,
"I have uttered that sentiment once.
"'Tis the note of the Jubjub! Keep count, I entreat.
You will find I have told it you twice.
'Tis the song of the Jubjub! The proof is complete.
If only I've stated it thrice."
"As to temper the Jubjub's a desperate bird.
Since it lives in perpetual passion:
Its taste in costume is entirely absurd-
It is ages ahead of the fashion:
"But it knows any friend it has met once before:
It never will look at a bribe:
And in charity-meetings it stands at the door,
And collects- though it does not subscribe.
"Its flavour when cooked is more exquisite far
Than mutton, or oysters, or eggs:
(Some think it keeps best in an ivory jar,
And some, in mahogany kegs
"You boil it in sawdust: you salt it in glue:
You condense it with locusts and tape:
Still keeping one principal object in view-
To preserve its symmetrical shape."
