AnElephantCant forget sensational Seattle
A city of high elegant buildings
He cavorts around
As though he is back in a playground with children
He can have fun in all sorts of places
It doesn’t take too much to spark it
He hears a shout and a swish
Sees Flying Crabs and Fish
Thrown by serving chaps in the superb Pike Place Market
Strolling along Alaskan Way on the waterfront
He gazes across Elliott Bay
With the help of Bill Gates
A Sculpture Park with a stunning display
He is entranced by the amazing Space Needle
Which he knows is really quite famous
It looks like a space ship
Evokes a star-spangled trip
It even appeared in a movie with Elvis
The views from the top are breathtaking
The Olympic Mountains and the Puget Sound
The skyline of the city
As it starts to get lit he
Just wanders around and around
There is so much AnElephant can tell you
Like the hilarious Underground Tour
It tells how they burnt the old town
With comedic genius to the ground
AnElephant is rolling on the floor
But once again the highlight is the people
He will never hear Seattellites maligned
AnElephant is impressed
By how they treat a guest
They are helpful and overwhelmingly kind
Nice views of Seattle, Elephant.
Did they let you on the monorail?
Can’t imagine you would fit though.
Wasn’t Pike Place a gas?
Let me know if you get back to town.
I agree with everyone else. gorgeous photography! Greatly enjoyed the elements of the history in your always entertaining and, in this case, high amusing poetry. 🙂
AnElephantCant always be funny
Sometimes he just tells the facts
He writes what he sees
The snaps are a breeze
And the pictures paper over the cracks
PS what do you mean ‘in this case!!!!’
Thank you for this trip around Seattle. It looks worth a visit. Enjoy the rest of your trip. 🙂
AnElephantCant deny it
He visits another very beautiful city
If AnElephant does it
Everybody can visit
And perhaps write their own silly ditty
AnElephantCan take pictures
That’s for sure.
So much art and beauty
A feast for the eye…
So now Emmy
wonders “why didn’t I?”
AnElephantCant claim he’s a photographer
Everyone knows he is a teensy bit thick
But it’s easy in Seattle
To win this beattle
He just points his trunk and goes click
Beautiful shots of a lovely city. That Space needle is amazing. 🙂
Seattle is spectacularly easy to snap.
The Space Needle is just wonderful – both to look at and to visit.
