Wednesday's Wonderful World of Waldorf

This gorgeous gnome was needle felted by Ruth McCarthy for the Class Spring Table
Isn't he handsome?

The Gnome

Deep down he goes, the little gnome
Deep down into his earthy home.
Deep down among the roots he lives;
Such help to all the plants he gives.

He helps the seed to split its skin;
He helps the roots to settle in;
He helps the shoots to stand upright
And grow to reach the warm sunlight.

Sometimes he comes above the ground
Sometimes his footprints can be found;
Sometimes, before the moon is up,
He drinks the dew from bluebell cups.
