A Lion large and fierce to see.

Then having swallowed him I'll creep
Into the Guest Room Bed to sleep.

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 toadstool toppled in two.

"Where is my toadstool?" loud he lamented. -And that's how umbrellas first were invented.
