elf quotes- 5 of
I met a little Elf-man, once,
Down where the lilies blow.
I asked him why he was so small
And why he didn't grow.
Sudden the wee Elf
Smiled a wee smile,
Wonder at all he meets,
Wonderer chiefly at himself,--
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook, when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly.
"I'm quite as big for me, " said he,
"As you are big for you."
