I needed a poem to make me smile today so here’s a little one by John Kendrick Bangs.

The Little Elf

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.

He slightly frowned, and with his eye
He looked me through and through.
“I ’m quite as big for me,” said he,
“As you are big for you,”
