Once upon a starry night
Some elves came out to play
It really was quite a sight
It was more than words can say.
The frolicked in the moonlight,
They danced around with glee,
To see them was a great delight,
They were such fun to see.
They partied until sunrise,
Until it was dawn,
For at that moment, to my surprise,
I blinked and they were gone.
Elves are just pretend, that's what others say,
But I know they're for real, for I saw them at play.
