a poem story for summer

I went walking one summer day,
What did I see along the way?
A wee little elf who called 'follow me',
Right to the door at the base of a tree.
Lo and behold I turned very small,
And through that door was a room so tall,
With stairs that spiraled up to the top.
I started to climb but the elf said 'Stop'!
'Promise to never tell what you see,
This is the home where the tree elves be'.
I nodded my promise so seriously,
Together we climbed up mysteriously.
A room at the top had candles galore,
Elves were a'dancing on a corkwood floor.
They sang hurray for the summer day,
Tree elves ready for their work and play.
I watched with my head, my heart, and my hand,
This most wondrous world of the good elfin land.
Never again did I see such a sight,
and I kept that secret with all my might!
