AnElephantCant claim to be intelligent
He can’t answer life’s great philosophical questions
Like how does the Phoenix
Know what he’ll be next
And does garlic really aid the digestion
If a fly is called a fly because she flies
Why isn’t AnElephant described as a stroll
Is a Lion telling the truth
Why does a mouth have a roof
When a snowman melts what happens to his soul
Are there faeries at the bottom of the garden
In space how do they know which way is up
Does the moon really beam
Does ice actually cream
Why does a flying saucer not have a flying cup
Does each mother have the world’s most beautiful baby
Must each bride have something borrowed and blue
Can a city really sleep
Is AnElephant like a sheep
Who knows he will never find another you
Did Pinocchio grow up to be James Wood
Will cockroaches survive a nuclear fight
If this is true
Between AnElephant and you
It seems that they are the ones who are getting it right
Does the Sanity Clause apply throughout Lapland
Is there really a Heaven above
And what does it take
To correct this mistake
And stop old fools from continually falling in love
FYI, flying saucers DO have flying cups (it’s the secret to faster-than-light-travel), it’s just that we aren’t ready to see them yet.
A beautiful dreamy, funny poem
full of big and small puzzlement
I have one answer among them
My dear friend AnElephant
Old fools fall in love because
Their hearts have no wrinkle
Their eyes still twinkle
A need for love knows
Perhaps, dear Emmy, perhaps.
But it does not really help, does it?
Yes sir elephant old fools can fall in love for that is what the world does to us.
And it seems that, as Mr Cohen says, there ain’t no cure for love.
Oh well …….
Lots to ponder here…
Careful, RoSy, pondering can lead to wondering can lead to contemplation can lead to KAPOW!!!
Thank you for visiting, always a pleasure to see you here.
Oh, continue to fall in love each and every day!
I heard a comic say why to we Park in our Driveways and Drive on the Parkway?
There is so much fun to be had making fun of American English – and I can say that!
I’ve been a tad busy with tending my little ones, and writing. Reading takes a bit of a back seat – but I do try to return visits… Be well my friend.
AnElephant is just over the parrot to see Jules here.
Always a joy, always a kind word, always a smile.
He is well and hopes that you and your latest wee one are also.
I wish I knew…
You have time yet to find out!
But for some of us …..
anelephant would probably be better off with a tums
AnElephant has the digestive system of a mammoth!
AnElephant asks loads of questions
I find a lot of them amusing
I think Pinocchio would squirm
If he contracted wood worm
I find the English language so confusing
The Pinocchio line is just about AnElephant’s all-time favourite!
Makes him laugh every time, honestly!
🙂 AnElephant asks wonderful questions…..I do know the answer to one. Yes, faeries at the bottom of a garden because I use to play with them often as a child. Now, I want some ice cream….
AnElephant always has ice cream for his friends.
And the faeries watch over nice people when they sleep.
Maybe people should leave ice cream out for the faeries that watch over them as they sleep! Perfect.
