"How To Treat Elves"
By Morris Gilbert Bishop I met an elf man in the woods, The wee-est little elf! Sitting under a mushroom tall-- 'Twas taller than himself! "How do you do, little elf," I said, "And what do you do all day?" "I dance 'n fwolic about," said he, "'N scuttle about and play;" "I s'prise the butterflies, 'n when A katydid I see, 'Katy didn't' I say, and he Says 'Katy did!' to me! "I hide behind my mushroom stalk When Mister Mole comes froo, 'N only jus' to fwighten him I jump out'n say 'Boo!' "'N then I swing on a cobweb swing
Up in the air so high, 'N the cwickets chirp to hear me sing 'Upsy-daisy-die!' "'N then I play with the baby chicks, I call them, chick chick chick! 'N what do you think of that?" said he. I said, "It makes me sick. "It gives me sharp and shooting pains To listen to such drool." I lifted up my foot, and squashed The God damn little fool.


The Violet Elf

Morris Gilbert Bishop (April 15, 1893 November 20, 1973) was an American scholar, historian, biographer, author, and humorist. Morris Bishop's comic poems appeared in magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, The New Yorker, and Life. They were collected in two volumes, Paramount Poems(subtitled "If it isn't a PARAMOUNT it isn't a poem"), and Spilt Milk.
"How to Treat Elves," probably his best-known poem, describes a conversation with "The wee-est little elf." When asked what he does, the elf tells the narrator "'I dance 'n fwolic about,' said he, "'n scuttle about and play.'" A few stanzas describe his activities surprising butterflies, "fwigtening" Mr. Mole by jumping out and saying "Boo," and swinging on cobwebs. He asks the narrator "what do you think of that?"
