The Elves (poet unknown)

If you make a daisy chain,
And hang it on a tree,
Elves will have it for a swing -
You just try and see.

If you put a bunch of May
Somewhere in the ground,
Elves will trim their hat-brims with it,
And then dance round and round.

If you shake the petals down
From a crimson rose,
Elves will come and gather them
To make their Sunday clothes.

If you drop an apple blossom
When the dew is on it,
Elves will set to work and make
A baby fairy’s bonnet.
