Ode to Elephants
The earth does rumble as they walk
With booming steps they tread,
I hear them in the Safari night
While I'm laying in my bed.
With long, royal tusks
And gray, wrinkly skin,
These mighty mammals
Are so much greater than men.
Juxtaposed, their greatness so vast,
But their caring demeanor,
What great parents they make
To guard the young from those animals meaner.
The elephants are so much more than we see,
Inside the large animal is a heart, oh so small.
The small in the big is ironically
The most loving of all.
