Little Men by Flora Fearne

Little Men 

by Flora Fearne

Would you see the little men

Coming down a moonlit glen?-

Gnome and elf and woodland sprite,

Clad in brown and green and white,

Skipping, hopping, never stopping,

Stumbling, grumbling, tumbling, mumbling,

Dancing, prancing, singing, swinging-

Coats of red and coats of brown,

Put on straight or upside down,

Outside in or inside out,

Some with sleeves and some without,

Rustling, bustling, stomping, romping,

Strumming, humming, hear them coming-

You will see the Little Men

If it be a Fairy glen.
