Come buy," call the goblins
Hobbling down the glen.

You should not peep at goblin men."

James, this is so fantastic! You captured the likeness so perfectly and I really LOVE the little goblins (esp. the one with the pipe) and the fairies remind me so much to Mary Cicely Barker's art - THANK YOU for this most beautiful artwork!!

Art at its best.
