Pinky and Yuletide Whimsies
Nils, the Swedish Yuletide Gnome
At The Lodge got lots of stares.
He didn't really feel at home
As The Lodge was full of bears!
As the only gnome in sight, you see
He earned the status of minority.
Clearly the bears had to think about
The fact that he surely felt left out.
So, the bears got into a huddle
To discuss what they could do
Would a gnome respond to a cuddle?
Or maybe a joke or two?
Now Tilly Bear's a motherly sort
So, don't be fooled by her soaker!
She guessed that Nils could not be bought
By a huggy type or a joker.
If another gnome was nowhere around
And, to Nils, the lodge wasn't home-like,
Then a strategy would need to be found
To make a bear appear more gnome-like.
A gnome wouldn't dress in something flimsy
Nor slip into something slinky.
No, what she needed was a touch of whimsy . . . . .
"I've got it!", she squealed as she put on Pinky!!
Now that Nils is as happy as Larry with the bears at The Lodge, Pinky has gone to a new owner as a Secret Santa gift.
