AnElephant Can fly over the rainbow
He can take you jigging down by Brigadoon
He puts his invisible cloak on
Talks sense to a leprechaun
And eats jam and green cheese from the moon
He visits the North Pole to pop in on Santa
He admires Cinderella’s new dress
He ignores blinkered fools
Loves to dance with werewolves
And plays hide and seek with the monster in Loch Ness
He has fun with all kinds of neat creatures
Climbs high buildings with his cool chum King Kong
He jumps in the pool to
Splash a cute Push-Me-Pull-You
He sings with the loveliest of all that’s the unicorn
He produces great philosophical questions
Why does a giraffe never wear a top hat?
Can you knit with Scotch mist?
Why does Simon Cowell exist?
And he frets about Schrodinger’s cat
He sees fairies at the bottom of his garden
Some folk can’t and he thinks this is tragic
What is even more scary
They don’t get The Tooth Fairy
With imagination our lives can be magic
He knows every night all his toys come to life
And Rag Doll pours green tea for Tin Soldier
So pretend you’re a child
Let your senses run wild
Years may pass but you don’t have to get older
So pretend you’re a child
And let your senses run wild….
Yes! three times yes
And it tribute to Cohen
a tribute, sorry. sheepish grin.
AnElephantCant contain his joy here
He wishes his smile you could see
He says to Emmy
Merci chere amie
Three times yes is toujours oui oui oui
What a joy to see
that AnElephant can.
Now I am more
than just a mere fan.
He sees fairies at the bottom
of his garden plot.
I’m told I can too,
I’ve tried, but for naught.
to connect with all tots.
That makes me smile,
lots and lots. 😀
AnElephant always knew it
LuAnn has the talent do it
Not so fast there big boy (lol)! 🙂
See!! All ways remind me of my childhood ….and adulthood favorite the ever so fun Dr. Seuss…know why? Because of this ~ With imagination our lives can be magic ~ This brought me a HUGE smile 😀 Hugs ~
AnElephantcant help thinking Christina
Is still a sweet child in her heart
He bets that her smiles
Light up the whole world for miles
When she reads words like bum pooh and fart
Now AnElephant doesn’t like to be rude
He really isn’t that sort of dumb creature
At the risk of rebuttal
He tries to be subtle
Because imaginosity is the purest force in all nature
I am all smiles now! 😀 And even more convinced that AnElephant will help keep me smiling and make my imaginosity immensest!! 😀
brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!
Thank you thank you thank you
AnElephant replies in triplicate
He is grateful because
He knows you’re in Oz
You had the whole world to circumnavigate
As always brilliant as the sunlight on a sunny day..doesn’t rhyme but still true! 🙂
AnElephant is delighted and amazed
At the so kind words that Penny always says
If she returns time after time
It is not necessary to rhyme
He says thank you that’s merci en Francaise
I am so glad anElephantCan fly over rainbows,
and I assume, bounce on clouds
and swing on the moon…
Giraffes don’t wear top hats ’cause it’s unbecoming,
Simon Cowell exists to keep us freaking,
Shrodinger’s cat has nine lives or is it eighteen?
I am laughing to loud
It wrinkles my brow,
but my grinnin’ is fine.
AnElephantCant cross swords with Emmy
He knows she is as sharp as two knives
He can trumpet a tune
And jump over the moon
But he thinks the cat may have run out of lives
He thinks a giraffe in a top hat could be elegant
And you get a big pong from a smelly giant
He thinks rubber shoes come from a welly plant
Though this is not at all relevant to AnElephant
If you think he can do more rhymes – well he can’t
Crossing words is oh so much fun. 🙂
You words are always an inspiration to this Canadian!!!
One of AnElephant’s favourite poets (with Uncle Bobby) is a Canadian – Leonard Cohen.
One of his all-time favourite musicians is Neil Young.
One of his early inspirations was Buffy Saint-Marie.
One of his favourite bloggers is the incredible LadyDay – see recent Bouquet of Bloggers post.
So any inspiration he gives you is a tiny return.
But thank you, he greatly appreciates your support and kind words.
AnElephantCan spin a very good Rhyme
Especially when it comes to age and time
Just because you grow older from being a pup
Doesn’t mean you ever need to fully grow up.
I can’t quite get these rhymes to go right,
So apologies for it being somewhat trite
😉 Great post though
Alastair!! You are very good at this!!!
🙂 Thanks 🙂
Say your rhyme was all right
And not at all trite
Thank you 🙂
