I met a little elfman once,
Down where the lilies blow.
I asked him why he was so small,
And why he didn't grow.
He slightly frowned, and with his eye
He looked me through and through -
"I'm just as big for me," said he,
"As you are big for you!"
-The Little Elfman by John Kendrick Bangs
We didn't find tiny elf men meandering through the grass that day, but the children did have a great time running through this field of wild lilies.
I've updated their pictures on the side with some of what was captured that sunny morning in Newnan, Ga. I thought I'd share a few more of my growing twosome as well!
