AnElephantCant stay here forever
The time is right for his next crazy move
He is taking a chance
And heading for France
Although he doesn’t expect to visit Le Louvre
He knows it is hard to leave Scotland
But he won’t go as far as the moon
Both readers who know him
Can expect a poem
Which he plans to publish here very soon
He plans to migrate south next Thursday
And point his trunk towards the Chunnel
He hopes to be seeing
His sweet buddy Leanne
And maybe pop into Dover for fun Al?
After crossing he will drift at his leisure
He is once again free and footloose
He will try to be funny
Describing petit dejeuner
Of frogs legs and croissants and orange juice
His goal is a zoo near the seaside
Way down there in sunny Provence
Where he can find peace
Get some sun on his knees
Write some tales and a few wee chansons
In the meantime he is temporarily homeless
So he seeks the kindness of un ami
He heads for the Med
In search of a bed
Do you have plenty of cacahuetes Emmy?
Good luck with the move and finding somewhere new to unpack your trunk.
“…Fun al…” as in funnel cake (the hungry part of me is dreaming funnel cake as that is one think I associate with vacations…) have ‘fun’ al~
AnElephantCant help adoring a lady who thinks with her taste buds!
Thank you, Michele.
Travel well my dear friend xxxx
Thanks, Roxi, AnElephant is happy in the knowledge that one or two special friends are always with him.
Hugs to you
Sounds like AnE is gonna’ have loads of fun! Happy & safe travels to you 🙂
Trunk crossed, RoSy, thanks for good wishes.
an elephant will fill his valise
and move somewhere else that will please
we don’t mind a bit
we’re sure he will fit
and make a whole lot of amis
AnElephantCant quite close his suitcase
It appears to be quite chock-a-block
He wrinkles his brow
He is quite worried now
Will he have to abandon his grandfather clock?
Good luck to you, and safe travels!
Thank you, much appreciated.
Safe travels –
Do let us know when you are settled.
Moving can be a pain in the trunk.
So be careful, and enjoy your ‘new’ stomping grounds.
Thanks, Jules, will never lose touch with friends like you!
An Elephant’s going to enhance
His experiences over in France?
Les poemes, they’ll still rhyme
Though moving takes time
And I’ll wish you a friendly “Bonne chance!”
AnElephantcant hide his surprise here
He wonders if his old eyes deceive
A delightful rhyme
From son ami nouveaucoussinlivre
A meerkat is sad you are leaving
The land of his Granddads with Greats –
Enjoyed Scottish scenes thus receiving,
But none had some Frenchmen as mates.
AnElephantCant stop writing about Scotland
That is pretty much all that he knows
But when he gets to France
He may learn to dance
The can-can so anything goes!
All the best 🙂
Cheers, future blogs and comments en Francais, ok?
That sounds like quite a change. Hope it all goes well.
Thanks, David, what can possibly go wrong!
As someone who has moved between countries twice, I can say, absolutely nothing can go wrong. Enjoy the totally smooth transition. 😉
Bien sur j’ai des cacahuetes!
Et meme des cajoux
que tu appelles cashews
La porte est ouverte en grand
Merci, cherie, on a peut-etre besoin d’un ami.
Et des cacahuetes!
Plus on est de fous
plus on s’amuse
Et les cacahuetes il y en a
Plein, t’en fais pas!
This news has taken me quite by surprise
That AnElephant is moving over to France?
When you are down near the sea
You can come and see me
I really do hope that you get the chance
Get the peanuts in for Friday!
