Had fun alliterating my way through the alphabet, twice. Aspirations to become a writer one day, poems will suffice for the moment.

G is for Gnomes. A-Z Challenge 2015

Gnomic Poetry
consists of meaningful sayings put into verse to aid the memory. 
They were known by the Greeks as gnomes, from the Greek word for "an opinion".

"a saying pertaining to the manners and common practices of men, which declareth, with an apt brevity, what in this our life ought to be done, or not done".

what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

-Miss Bates.


  1. Love these quotes. Twain was definitely right.

  2. art and conversation - sorry private jokes don't really work on comments :)


Feel inclined to indulge in words that intrigue.
