I Have Never Even Heard Of An Elfchen

Nova, the creator of My Namastè 365 Online, has tagged me for a challenging challenge as you can see from her post below:

Won the Battle

This is particularly challenging to me because I have never heard of an elfchen! However, Nova has provided a helpful explanation:

An elfchen is an 11 word poem written in 5 lines

— Line 1=1word,  Line 2=2words,  Line 3=3words, Line 4=4 words,  Line 5 =1 word.  

Lines 1 and 5 should not be the same word.  

Woah! That sounds so difficult!!! I will try…but this really is a challenge for the likes of me who tends to write long waffling posts!!! But “if we don’t try new challenges…” well, something bad, I can’t think how the saying goes. Oh yes, now I remember…”we don’t grow!”

Here is my Elchen:


In love

Where is he?

Not by my side



Thank you for the challenging challenge Nova! Here is to challenges that make us grow!! Now I know what an elfchen is. I have learnt something today! But now it is time to go to sleep and leave other bloggers on a different time zone to me to keep the blogging world entertained!

I believe I am to challenge three other bloggers to write an elfchen!
