Location Poem: The Wonder Museum

Temple to the Gnome God
Rising high above
A city with no moral code
Beyond their metal walls
And never daring to tread close

Explosions rock the inner room
As the Gnome God stands above
The furnace at his feet
And projectiles banging
Off his metallic hide

Every gnome is lost in thought
Writing notes and ducking fast
Inventing the new world
One experiment at a time
And the Gnome God grins with pride

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I didn’t expect that image to go with the title; if I wasn’t going to read the poem anyway, that would have made me want to find out how they could be related. 🙂


    • It was really hard to find a picture that goes with The Wonder Museum. I got frustrated and started doing word association with ‘gnome’. Explosion caught my eye and I ran with it. This place is one of my favorite scenes in Prodigy of Rainbow Tower.


  2. This poem is the “bomb”, I’m really enjoying these location pieces.
