Mr Lewis is Lewis Carroll, also known as Charles Dodgson, who wrote the books 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass'. This poem refers to when Alice was asked by the Mad Hatter why a raven was like a writing-desk.
Why is a raven like a writing-desk?
Mr Lewis asked me that.
I can say why a pen is like a sword
Cutting to the quick with every stroke
Of nib or blade.
I can say why a tree is like a rock
Standing firm, unmoved until someone breaks it
With hammer or axe.
I can say why a reed is like a man
Turned this way and that in a flash
By wind or word.
But I can't answer your question,
