Recursive walk through DOM elements strange behavior

I'm trying to make a function that walks recursively through the elements bellow:

<body>
    <main class="main">
        <header class="e200-header">
            <a class="umburg side-item" href="#">
                <div>
                    <span class="line line-1"></span>
                    <span class="line line-2"></span>
                    <span class="line line-3"></span>
                </div>
            </a>
        </header>
        <section class="presentation">
        </section>
    </main>
</body>

This is the code that makes it:

function recursiveResolve(node) {
            if (typeof node != 'undefined') {
                //node.someMethod = aFunction

                var l = node.childElementCount

                if (l) {
                    childrens = node.children
    
                    for (var i = 0; i < l; i++) {
                        recursiveResolve(childrens[i])
                    }
                }
            }
        }

recursiveResolve(document.body)

The problem is that, its not working as expected, it is only resolving until the last <span class="line line-3"></span> and stops there when  <section class="presentation"></section> still remaining to be resolved. What i'm doing wrong?
