Elf tells me he didn't really think about what he was saying while he recited; he just knows it. He can tell you all about what the verse means when he isn't so nervous. What do you think of Emperor's recitation below? Isn't he cute? Usually he is actually MORE squirmy than that though. Frequently when he writes, you're not sure if he is playing Twister or just being goofy. Neither... he's just being Emperor. Elf is much more sedate.
