Roses are Red
Violets are Refrigeration
Aliens don’t wear hats!
AnElephantCant tell you how lucky he is
With the more talented much fairer sex
He isn’t good looking
He is hopeless at cooking
And he is clueless at reading sub-text
He was born back in the Dark Ages
When watches and clocks all had hands
Don’t even ask him
He is a pachyderm but still a mere man
But a young lady will always befriend him
Like they do with cute little stray mutts
Though he does sometimes smell
They treat him so well
Give him tea and a plate of peanuts
The sweetheart who sent him this drawing
Is truly a joy to behold
She has talent and brains
She sure entertains
And she is still only just 10 years old
AnElephant really appreciates
The portrait you see up above
He uses this rhyme to send
To his delightful new friend
A big thank you a hug and his love
If I have 7 pencils
And you have 4 apples
Why are there pancakes on the roof?
a very cute potrait by your friend..and a loving tribute..
Just wondering – have you put any of your poetry into song? Just a thought….
Well, some of AnElephant’s songs are quite poetic, nearly rhyme and stuff!
AnElephant has to say, Clanma, you have a nice smile.
anelephantcant should not be too trusting of lovely young ladies of any age. Beware! She is definitely competition and has far superior artistic skills. And she will probably make more peanuts than you ever will with her talent.
This is wonderful and LuAnn is correct. Definitely you have a most special way with children. re: your poetry, and most especially your attitude on life! 🙂
Love it but can’t begin to answer the question of why there are pancakes on the roof! 🙂
Ah LuAnn, sadly even AnElephant is too grown up for that. But isn’t it great just to be part of their imagination?
Truly it is. I sense you have a real way with children. 🙂
