  1. This is a new style of poetry for me that I haven’t heard of before, but I really like it. I’m sharing it with my daughter who homeschools and has her children write poetry at times. One of them loves it, so I think she would like this new style. Beautiful work!

    • Vickie, I appreciate your thoughts. The Elfchen style is different from the Haiku, but it offers a writer a way to experiment with a different format. When I first tried crafting poetry as an Elfchen, I wasn’t quite ready to commit to it. Later, I came back and discovered that it is a unique way to bring praise to God in a variety of settings. I hope your daughter and grandchildren continue to pursue poetry in style.
