AnElephantCant think of anywhere better
Than San Francisco to spend his last days
It sits on the Bay
What more can he say
This city continues to amaze
He has breakfast in California sunshine
Orange juice and a decadent croissant
He sits in Union Square
With flowers in his hair
AnElephant feels like he is in a great song
All around him the artists are showing
He talks to a talented man
AnElephant‘s says please
Can he feature these
Michael tells him of course you can
Then it’s Fisherman’s Wharf for a ramble
He sees a tall ship with masts and thinks oh!
It can hardly get smoother
The beautiful Balclutha
Is built in 1886 in Glasgow
He takes a trip round the bay in a neat boat
Passes underneath the Golden Gate
Then round Alcatraz
The hour goes so fast
AnElephant thinks this trip is great
He sees all sorts of wonderful creatures
Porpoises frolic happily in the waves
And seals who gaze at him amazed
So as he gets psyched to head homewards
AnElephant is one happy boy
San Fran is a jewel
A city so cool
It once again fills him with joy
It’s sad that I’ve never had the chance to truly explore San Fran….but with your spectacular descriptions and photos of your adventure…it’s almost like I have. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
AnElephantCant believe lovely Christina
Has never rocked to San Fran’s cool rhythm
If he’d known in advance
He’d have taken a chance
And smuggled her in the bag he had with him
I’ve only been to San Fransisco once but I loved it. Sort of reminded me of home [Melbourne].
Melbourne is a work of art
San Francisco steals the heart
You’ve been here? Wow. 😀 You know those street stalls in San Francisco? I bought a glorious vase from one of those stalls… and I still have it 26 years later!
AnElephant loves Oz
His elder cub
Goes to a pub
In New South Wales
And all the emails
Can never replace
The sight of his face
I think I’d hate it if my one and only cub moved so far away. 😦 Does your cub like it here? Do you visit often? Is it culture shock for you when you visit?
He loves it, and why wouldn’t he, it is a fabulous country with great people.
Not often enough.
And it is a culture shock – for the Aussies!
lol – I guess not many of us get to see AnElephant-who-Can. 😉
This is a beautiful post. From the way you described it, it makes me want to visit it even more.
You must go
To San Francisco
If AnElephant says
Then a Lady must do
Just wonderful. San Francisco, the city, should pay you for your most descriptive posts. They make a person want to visit this magical place you describe and photograph so well. As always love your rhymes. My memories of San Francisco include some of the very best experiences I’ve ever had, so I can well appreciate your appreciation for same! Much love, Penny
You are as sweet as ever.
Thank you once again.
Did you leave your heart in San Francisco? Such a beautiful city. 🙂
Lost it completely!
Thank you for taking me back to San Fran with those great pictures. It is a very cool and happy place.
De rien, cherie.
Le grand oiseau d’argent m’attend maintenant.
I hope that AnElephant has had fun
Over there and out in the sun
With the Golden Gate Bridge
Sat steadily on it’s ridge
Now that your trip over there is done
You’re a pal
Have a safe flight home my friend
We love San Francisco. Glad you’ve had such a brilliant time 🙂
Thank you, hugs.
Thanks for taking me to San Francisco with your words. It is a beautiful city, I’ve been there numerous times, though it seems like a lifetime ago. Great post my friend.
Oops, just realised it’s almost time to board.
But so happy to see you here.
Praise from you is special to me.
