    Wonderful! ! ! , I could see each character taking it's place. The flowers the night and the new day to come. Elves bouncing away with their secrets in till there were none. (Report) Reply

    A great piece of alliteral work. The earlier morning is distinctly dipicted. Having done the party, the elves make for home. meantime young nature and its infants nicely presented. (Report) Reply

    Divine and a fairy tale indeed! ! ...... But I couldn't comprehend why the poet separates a 'flower' and a 'rose'... Does that mean the moon light begins to fade from flowers and end up with roses? or Is the writer elevating roses from other flowers? (Report) Reply
