A gnome is a tiny fellow who lives in the earth
He likes to guard the treasures that have a lot of worth
He has a hunchback and a beard, and often wears a hat
He can move through solid ground as easily as a cat

He was first described by Paracelsus, a famous alchemist
He said that gnomes were elementals, and not to be dismissed
Later, gnomes appeared in fairy tales and fantasy stories
They sometimes helped the heroes, and sometimes caused some worries

Gnomes are also known as garden ornaments, with cheerful faces
They can be found in many places, in different poses and races
Some people think that gnomes are real, and have a secret life
They may come out at night, and have adventures full of strife.

A gnome is a mythical creature that can have different appearances depending on the culture and folklore.

Generally, gnomes are depicted as small, human-like beings with pointy hats, long beards, and colorful clothes.

They are often associated with nature, magic, and underground treasures.

Here are some examples of how gnomes are described in different sources:
  • In European folklore, gnomes are dwarfish, subterranean goblins or earth spirits who guard mines of precious metals and gems hidden in the earth.
  • In the GNOME project, a free and open source software that provides a desktop environment for UNIX-like operating systems, gnomes are shown as cute and friendly mascots that symbolize simplicity, elegance, and usability.
  • In the New World Encyclopedia, gnomes are classified as one of the four elemental races, along with sylphs, salamanders, and undines.
    They are said to be the guardians of the earth element, and to have the ability to manipulate rocks, metals, and plants.
  • In Russian sources, gnomes are defined as a type of fairy-tale character that originated from the Germanic and Scandinavian mythology.
    They are usually friendly and helpful to humans, but can also be mischievous and pranksters.
As you can see, gnomes can look very different depending on the context and the source.

However, they all share some common traits, such as being small, having a connection to the earth, and possessing some magical powers.

A gnome is a creature of fantasy lore
Who lives in the earth or a garden floor
He has a big nose and a pointy red hat
And sometimes he likes to act like a brat

He can guard the treasures that lie underground
Or help the plants grow healthy and sound
He can speak with riddles or tell a good joke
Or surprise you with a prank or a poke

He is small and hairy and often quite shy
But he can be friendly if you catch his eye
He loves the nature and all its creatures
And he has many charming and quirky features

A gnome is a being who can make you smile
With his wit and his magic and his unique style
He is part of the folklore of many lands
And he can be your friend if you lend him a hand
