The Elves Snow Party

Away up north where it’s snowing they say the elves are preparing for Christmas day. Big elves little elves, busier than bees All building toys, for under Christmas trees. Some work with hammers others building bikes, some riding through the room on brand new trikes. Tiny elf voices ringing loud and clear, everyone’s full of love and Christmas cheer. Suddenly the chatter stops; all are still, Santa walked in the room with book and quill. Looking down at his book, Santa Clause stared, then lifted his eyebrows as he declared, Today I looked inside my books and I found that we are ahead, and thought because you worked so hard we shall all go outside instead. Misses Claus made lots of sweet treats so let’s all eat and be hearty, for today here at the North Pole all elves shall have a snow party. Quick as a wink the elves they disappeared, Santa just smiled as he tugged at his beard. Laughing he watched his little friends scatter and soon the mountains echoed with laughter. Snowballs were flying, snowmen taking form, and hot chocolate kept little elves warm. They were sledding, skiing, skating all day, see, elves aren’t simply, all work and no play.

As I observed,all that you write is deep poetical.It is magically words flowering or you understand better (not only because name) what really Worte-wie blumen means.Congrat and best wishes of the season.
