'Elf'


the 1st thought of Christmas
with Santa's little helpers
busy making toys
toys to give away

on the other side
the era of the Middle Ages
with hobbits and burrows to see
but hidden away
is the life of the elves

each one with a beauty of a pure swan
the grace of a feather
snow white skin of youth like these cute Asians
but wise from many layers of history

how they died out
well not totally but don't know why
but always thought they evolved into Asians like today
seems like they don't age a day
but only from within

cousins of angels
descendants of elves long ago
with grace and beauty
with wisdom and youth
these are the elves today
the Asians walking by the way
but don't know what happened with the boys nowadays (*i guess that means me too () ^w^())
but girls are like elves anyways

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
