A Little Elf

A little elf
sat in a tree
painting leaves
to throw at me

Leaves of yellow
and leaves of red
came tumbling down
about my head.

Tipperty-toes, the smallest elf,
Sat on a mushroom all by himself,
Playing a little tinkling tune
Under the big round harvest moon;
And this is the song that Tipperty made
To sing to the little tune he played.

Red are the hips, red are the haws,
Red and gold are the leaves that fall,
Red are the poppies in the corn,
Red berries on the rowan tall;
Red is the big round harvest moon,
And red are my new little dancing shoon.

Let faith be my shield
And let joy be my steed,
‘Gainst the dragons of anger,
The ogres of greed.
And let me set free
With the sword of my youth,
From the castle of darkness
The power of truth.

Jack O Lantern, Jack O lantern
Your light it doth shine,
Sitting up upon the window
And your light it is mine.
Once you were a yellow pumpkin
Sitting on a sturdy vine
Now you are a Jack O lantern,
And in the night you will shine.
