ELFKIN ELVES (excerpt)  by Andrew Rist

Have you ever seen a shadow
Racing across a room,
Turning tricks and somersaults
Riding on a broom?
Well, its been said by many
In the town of Gremly-Grum
If you're there or happen to see
When the day is done
Or early in the morning,
Before the library doors
Open up to begin the day
You'll see a shadow for sure
