In The Still Of Night
Author: Elizabeth Squires


In the still of night
When the stars are ablaze
The elves and gnomes
Come out to play

They scamper and scurry
All full of verve
As the cattle and sheep
Take nightly preserve

Old man moon chuckles
At these funny wee guys
Skipping and gooning
In front of his eyes

On my pillow they do play
As the night slips slowly away
