This is something I just wrote randomly wanted to write a poem cause i haven't written one for a while, it's not my best, but it's ok, have a read...it was supposed to be funny, but turned out a little more dramatic than i pictured when i began it, it's about a dwarf out for a walk when everything becomes too quiet, almost too quiet....

Oh! The Creatures You'll See! - Poem

This is another tribute to the excellent children's poet and author, Dr. Seuss, aka Theodore Seuss Leosig. It is based on his poem/picture book Oh! The Places You'll Go! And as closely as possible follows the rhythm and rhymes of it. If you compare the two you'll find it's very close to the original's rhyme and rhythm. Enjoy! *a snoo is a creature i made up for the purposes of the poem, much like a mouse, but blue and with a shorter ears, it sneezes a lot, because of its proximity to the dusty ground, to which it is ironically allergic.

This is a modern fantasy story, which i'm working on and which i hope will grow into a big adventure.

The Elvi are from a made up period of time, where the Elves (Elvi) were the rulers of the Earth, which they call Lo'erth, they are the only creatures in their time capable of performing magic, and call themselves the Majus. There are several schools of magic, including chronomagicus, the school where the magic of time travel is taught. Students at this school call themselves the chronomagi...
