The Silvery Trail. - The Magic Onions

The Silvery Trail.

The Slivery Trail.

What is this trail,

this pathway I see?
It looks like magic
has been here to me.
It’s silvery white
and it came from the night
and it leads all around 
though I heard not a sound.
They are footprints, think I.
From the gnomes passing bye
as they rode on their silvery steeds.
With reins made of silk 
as befitting their ilk
they performed, oh,  such magical deeds!
by: Me

Isn’t he gorgeous, this gnome riding a snail! He was made by Sycamore Moon over at Felt Musings of Sycamore Moon Studios. Her felt work is magical and on display in her Etsy shop here

Blessings and magic.
