Acrostic Song is the lullaby-like concluding aria from Final Alice. The text is the seven-verse epilogue poem to Through the Looking Glass, the second of Lewis Carroll's Alice books. The poem is an acrostic; the initial letters of the lines spell out Alice Pleasance Liddell, the name of the real-life Alice for whom Carroll wrote his stories. Arranged for flute and harp by the composer.
