yet another poem(not by me this time)

here is one of my favourite poems ever,it is written by Oliver goes...

The Elf and the Dormouse

.. Under the toadstool crept a wee little Elf

Out of the rain to shelter Himself,

Under the toadstool sound asleep

Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap,

Trembled the wee Elf ,frightened, and yet,

Fearing to fly away lest he get wet

To the next shelter-maybe a mile!,

Suddenly the wee Elf smiled a wee smile,

Tugged till the toadstool toppled in two,

Holding it over his head he flew,

Soon he was in his home, dry as could be,

Soon woke the Dormouse -

"Good gracious me"!

"Where is my toadstool"? he lamented,

- And that's how umbrellas first were invented!

(as I said ,this poem is not one of my own but one by OLIVER HERFORD!)
