A goblin or hobgoblin is known to be an evil or mischievous being. In the poem below this naughty little goblin decides to make a change in the end. My research has turned up the fact that most goblins are green. Some goblins are even in the form ofcucurbits (squash) as seen in some of the vintage postcards below. They have unusual abilities and temperaments depending on the story and country of origin. Goblins are considered to be annoying little creatures somewhat related to the brownie and gnome. They are usually depicted as small, sometimes only a few inches tall, sometimes the size of a dwarf. They are said to possess various magical abilities.
