Is Anyone Home?

A Gnome Alone

(image source: dreamworlds.ru)

‘Twas far from home
that the little gnome
found himself all alone
in the forest to roam 

*
“Oh dear, oh dear,”
he thought in fear
when it became clear
no one was near

*

Then began the snow
to grow and grow
before long he didn’t know
which way he should go

*

When Birdies in a tree
the shivering gnome did see
with each other did agree
up there he should be

*

Down one of them flew
while saying “Hey there you
your face is turning blue
and your hair’s frozen too!” 

*

“Up with us do climb.”
to him a thought divine
their warmth he found sublime
and fell asleep in no time!

In The Heart Of The City

Let’s build a world
of our own fantasy
here in the heart
of the bustling city

    With angels and fairies
    a swan and a frog
    maybe even a gnome
    sitting on a log

A little sail ship
could bring us food
right in the middle
of the old neighborhood

    As people pass by
   they will probably stare
   Don’t know about you
   but I wouldn’t care

‘Cause it is happy
we would then be
even though we live
here in the city!
