Fanciful, whimsical and adorably shy

Yes, I’m a capricious sort with a watchful eye

I don’t portend to be a flawless self

I remember what I was told to myself

Methinks my wee self a joyous elf



This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word elf. Please drop by and join the challenge Patricia’s Place

Please stop in and visit ThusNSuch, dedicated to poetry – ThusNSuch

    I’m imagining you as a wee green and red Elf, and smiling with plenty of Christmas cheer.

      Thank you, Jacqueline. I believe it’s better to be joyful than not. Smile lines are more attractive than frown lines. 🙂

    We need more wee joyous elves. Seems most are kinda cantankerous. Maybe it’s because this is their busy time of year. Thanks for sharing!

      Yes, some elves can be cranky. I looked up the definition of elf and not all are joyous. Some are quite mischievous and naughty.

    Elves wear joy well. They work so very hard, though.
