There’s a place in eLFonia where one goes when a pensive thought strikes, when that thought turns into a moment that passes through the hedges of understanding, when that moment surrounds the shadows of the mind, when the mind is consumed with liberating that moment of pensive thought.
It’s a place called The Corner.
A Collection of Thoughts through Poetry
A very traditional eLFonian pastime is to reflect and collect our thoughts into poetic verse. It’s a pass time enjoyed by all eLFonians and is directly dependent on the phases of the eLFonian moons. The frequency of production, therefore, is low given the full moons occur once every six earth months.
