The Gnome

One Day..
I tripped over a large stone
who would have ever known
that i had just kicked a home
of an angered little gnome
with cheeks like rubies
eyes the color of jade
he wailed and complained
about the mess i had made
I layed on the ground,
watching this lil man so furious
the sadness and worry in his eyes
only made me curious.
While he raged on,
and pretended to be mad
I knew he really wasnt,
and was only sad.
So when he finally stopped being mean
and gave a look of 'what now'
I ignored his rudeness
and just kissed him on the brow.
As I walked away
I decided to look back
And saw a beautiful smile
his face should never lack.
