Day 18 – Harmless Fun

Home » Day 18 – Harmless Fun

This evening we feature a little piece by Paul Spooner which was first sold in 1997. ‘Harmless Fun’, a gnome sitting on top of a toadstool, were produced by the Fourteen Balls Toy Company, (but no longer available).
This one is number 50 of the edition. Dated 11th July 1997.

The accompanying rhyme – (written by Paul Spooner aged 49)

When yawning Orpheus drops his lyre,
and pixies of their trilling tire,
All softly to the dell I creep
To see the place where fairies sleep
And, while they dream a solitary Gnome
Is gently tossing in a toadstool’s dome.
