The gnomes of Netherland

Had a knack for stealing

Once they got into your garden

They’d send flower beds reeling

Sneaked in at midnight

Took whatever they could

Then sneaked out, come morning

Even taking some wood

Til one day they faltered

Caught off guard, you could say

They found it quite awkward

So, in the garden they’d stay

Turned to mere ornaments

To decorate the flowerbeds

These gnomes of Netherland

Are now American, instead
