Little Elf

Little Elf
Elf on the Shelf by Michael Kappel

Little elf, little elf
hiding there upon my shelf

Every year we eagerly await the
arrival of your shenanigans

Little elf, little elf
peaking from behind the mirror

Santa’s clever little spy
telling if we ever lie

Little elf, little elf
listening from yon windowsill
ticking boxes, passing judgment

While we frolic, laugh and cry,
never recognizing you’re to blame
for the loss of candy cane.

We think your cute, clever and fun,
but truly it’s you who delivers coal to everyone.

Poems to Santa, Rudolph and Frosty

This month’s Poetry challenge linky party, #OdetoChristmasCharacters has begun. You really mustn’t be surprised that this month I would have a holiday-themed poetry challenge awaiting you! I mean, who doesn’t love Santa Claus, Rudolph and Frosty?  A lot of people even love the unloveable Grinch.  Am I right?

Choose a Christmas character (Krampus counts) to create a poem around. If additional characters find their way into your piece, that’s fine, just try to make one character the primary focus.

This month’s unique party hashtag for your posts is #OdetoChristmasCharacters.

IMPORTANT DATES:

Submission deadline is Tuesday, December 22nd at 24:55 PST.
Submit now!

Voting opens at 00:05 PST on December 23rd and ends on New Year’s Eve, December 31st, 2015, at 23:55 PST.*
