The Elfchen or Elevenie form, is a German-inspired poem of eleven words in five lines, with 1, 2, 3, 4 words, then 1 word again for the fifth and last line.
Holds me fast
Eternally to abide in
From Jesse’s root
Return soon we pray
In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land.
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love.“
1 Corinthians 16:22
Maranatha. Our Lord, come!
