Please follow the rhythm of the poem

THE ELF AND THE DORMOUSE

Under a toad stool
Crept a wee Elf,
Out of the rain
To shelter himself.

Under the toad stool
Sound asleep,
Sat a big Dormouse
All in a heap.

Trembled the wee Elf
Frightened, and yet
Fearing to fly away
Lest he get wet.

To the next shelter--
Maybe a mile!
Sudden the wee Elf
Smiled a wee smile;

Tugged till the toad stool
Toppled in two;
Holding it over him,
Gayly he flew.

Soon he was safe home,
Dry as could be.
Soon woke the Dormouse--
"Good gracious me!

"Where is my toad stool?"
Loud he lamented.
And that's how umbrellas
First were invented.

--OLIVER HERFORD.
