I thought it was a well told little story. A lot of humor in it. The flow and rhymes of this poem are witty, and fitting. Good write. I don't see any corrections that could be made except for maybe finding a picture that might help stimulate the imagination a bit more.

    I'm glad you liked my little gnome poem. All the gnome pictures looked like ads for travelocity. I couldn't find a good one. Thanks for reviewing.

Dear Cindy,

A fun poem with sage advice. I never will invite a gnome home. Excellent rhyming and flow. If I want to see a gnome where should I look.

Warm regards,

Winslow

LOL, this is precious. I loved the story and it was fun to read. I loved the rhymes and they weren't forced like so many on here. And I liked the rhythm and the flow. Great job my friend.

Great fun.

Love your ending:My woeful words you must believe,
He never, ever wants to leave.
He had me fooled, I think it's plain,
We never did get that rain.
Gnomes are imps, and imps can curse;
I wouldn't want to make things worse.
So should you chance to meet a gnome,
Never, never take him home!

I must admit, I have taken home a gnome or two in my life. LOL
Hugs, d

A story with a moral in this engaging write.

Good end rhyme and a rollicking if uneven meter; but it's the amusing, whimsical story that impresses.

Best of luck in the contest.

    I'm surprised how many people have mentioned a moral. It wasn't intentional; it just sort of snuck in. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the great review.
reply by juliaSjames on 02-Mar-2013
    LOL

    The moral is in your final lines - there are many "gnomes" lurking around trying to guilt someone into taking them home.

    peace and blessings, julia

    Yes, I suppose there are a few people who could have been turned into gnomes for this poem. I wasn't thinking about that when I wrote it.

    Yep, there are a few people who easily could have been turned into a gnome for this poem. You have to be careful who you invite in. Thanks for the great review.

What a charming poem! I smiled all the through while reading it. Your rhyming is perfect, and I don't see that too often. I couldn't get a grip on your meter, it seemed to vary from line to line, verse to verse. But the idea was wonderful, and that's what's really important.
