Hahahaha! How adorable! I am thoroughly charmed by these little rascals as you describe them. Excellent rhyme, and a smooth-as-silk meter make this a most enjoyable read! (Bet I'm reading the winner--good luck!)

This work has reached the exceptional level

Four quatrains well structural built up, well set within their versification rhymes and flow and also beautifully described throughout their narrative hilarious and incredulous superstitional and folkloristic popular existence questionnaire of the "gnome, sweet home!" Each people have different legends about these praising, terrible, hating creatures. I love it. A great work!

    Ciao Yvette! I did enjoy your gnomes and I wrote quiet a bit about them and all the Naepolitan superstitions in one of the chapters of my thriller or so THE BLUE HOLE. I have little time during this ending August due to my gardening and painting. How are things going on for you!Thank you for all your immense help and Blessings! Tony

I was in the mood for something fun this morning and your post fills the bill nicely. Nice rhythm, nice rhymes, and a pleasant romp. btw, I keep my gnomes in the garden to keep the muddy footprints at bay. Yours are much better trained....

This is a fun poem, YM. You handled the prompt well. I like the whimsy of your words. The image is a great pairing. The final line with a play on the word home with 'gnome' is great.
Thanks for sharing.
Respectfully, Jan

Ha! Ha! A very cute poem about the gnomes who do things when no one is looking. I enjoyed the whole poem but I absolutely love the last line "Who wouldn't want a Gnome Sweet Home"

Hey Yvette.

This wouldn't be a metaphor would it? :~)))

Gnomes are very handy when they do their job. The problem is they are lazy and everyone else gets the blame for them not doing their job.

Good luck in the contest.

DA Z ???

I wish my gnomes would clean the floors! I would buy them ALL shoes to sneak and steal.

You have met the requirements of this contest: Write a poem in which every stanza either begins with a question or ends with a question.

Best of luck in the Question writing prompt contest.

Enjoyed!
