The Gnomes Have Invaded…

July 11, 2010

It’s high time I returned to the continuing saga of The Great Gnome Invasion of 2010. (This is the start of a little poem I wrote to commemorate this historical event.)

All of a sudden there were gnomes…

Big ones and wee ones in red pointy hats,

Over hilltops and toadstools, running this way and that.

Photo courtesty of Calamity Kim. Measuring tape legs!

And just when you thought you’ve seen the last one

A hundred and fifty spring up and run.

Out from the forest and through the tall grass,

All you can see are the points of their hats

Was that a grampa I saw, with pick axe and spade?

Don’t tell me that crater is the hole that he made!

I turned on my heels to run to back to my home

Lest it become overrun with these gnomes!

Photo courtesy of Ashley Boccuti, who has joined a quilt swap and asked for her blocks to be all gnomes, I'm can't wait to see it!

I suddenly tripped and to my dismay,

Forty two mommas skipped past me in sway

With wee ones in baskets and hair up in buns,

You’d think they’d be slow but oh did they run!
