Once upon a time, in a land of bright colors and enchanting magic, there were ten little goblin elves. They were known far and wide for their bright caps made of black and orange crepe paper, and for their colored masks that added an element of mystery and playfulness.
One day, the first little goblin elf found himself standing alone. He was the lonesomest goblin elf ever known. “Oh, how lonely I am,” he sighed, a frown playing on his small, masked face.
Just as he finished his words, the second goblin elf appeared, a big smile lighting up his face. “Cheer up, my friend!” he chuckled. “With two of us, we can have lots of fun. Now that Halloween’s begun, we have a heap of work to do.”
Before long, the third goblin elf joined them, always bright and gay. “Three’s a crowd,” he beamed. “Together, we can chase away the gloom all the livelong day.”
Then came the fourth goblin elf, a knowledgeable soul. “Four goblin elves, standing in a row. I tell you, we four know all the Halloween secrets.”
Next, the fifth goblin elf danced his way in, merry as ever. “Five of us now!” he sang. “Right around your doorstep, this very night we tarry.”
Suddenly, the sixth goblin elf appeared, ready to stroll about. “Six little goblin elves,” he declared, “ready to scare whoever ventures out.”
The seventh goblin elf, flitting here and there, added to the crowd. “Seven of us,” he chimed in, “we can travel on the ground or sail through the air.”
In came the eighth goblin elf, prepared for adventure. “Eight of us, all ready for whatever comes our way. We know all the secrets of old Dame Nature.”
The ninth goblin elf then joined the group, spreading warmth wherever he went. “Nine goblin elves now, all of whom you should know. We scatter sunshine wherever we go.”
Finally, the tenth goblin elf stepped in, standing straight and tall. “Ten little goblin elves, here to bring a jolly Halloween to one and all.”
Together, they chanted, “Ten little goblin elves, that is what we are. To bring a jolly time to you, we have traveled far. We like to see you smiling, for we know that’s the way to make for happy living, every single night and day.”
And with that, the ten little goblin elves, in a perfect line, marched once around the magical land, spreading Halloween joy and cheer, as their enchanting song echoed across the land.
