You arrived right before Christmas,
Little elf – called “Elf on a Shelf”,
Seeking a child’s home for yourself.
Riding with UPS, to your special
Family’s house, pointing the way;
There they are - Sadie and Reilly!
You perched on a stair banister
Riding in a candy cane sleigh;
Elf! Find another place to play!
You jumped into the flour jar, tipped
It over - thought it was fresh snow.
Flapping arms sculpting angel wing dough.
Where or where will you next appear?
Your elfin magic knows no bounds
Christmas elf, silent magic sounds.
