TRUMPETNOSE'S SELECTED

POEMS

ABOUT TRUMPETNOSE

TRUMPETNOSE is the beloved and much respected poet and noble leader of Trolldom. He has always been a writer but did not want to be the leader of anything. We are trying to piece together the events which lead to him becoming the leader of Trolldom, a very long time ago, and will publish the findings as soon as possible.

Trumpetnose writes both stories and poems, some of which rhyme. He doesn't have a preference, but when he is in a rhyming phase, he even talks in rhyme. Our poet is not a practical type. When writing, or trying to get started, he will forget to eat, he will lose his pencils and paper, and generally will not know what is going on. His trusted friend  and secretary, Murriboy, makes sure that there is pen and paper handy, and that the poet will eat. Murriboy is married to Miss Merri, who bakes the best berry pies this side of  The Blue Sea.

All writers know that the dreaded Writer's Block can sneak up on them at any time. When this happens to Trumpetnose, it is a terrible nose ache.  That's because he stores his unfinished poems in his nose. Here you see how miserable Trumpetnose is when the words are stuck. The best remedy for our poet is a brisk walk - in fact he likes to go on long walks every day. He calls them his 'Brain Fresheners'.


This is Trumpetnose's home, a magnificent stone tower close to The Blue Sea, not far from the Main Square and Table of Important Decisions. Here you see Trumpetnose sitting in his big chair, thinking about Big Things. His motto is displayed on a banner, as you see. It is short and to the point: "THINK". If you ask about it, he will tell you : "It's the best advice I ever got".

 
Trumpetnose also knows the importance of taking time for recreation.  He likes to go fishing - it isn't at all important if you catch anything or not.  And he values the company of his friends, as they do his.  Following is a selection of his poems. If you like, you can send us your poems and with your permission, we will post them on our Poet's Friends page.
