AnElephantCant keep it a secret
Pachyderms come in many different shapes and sizes
The little dudes up above
Who you just gotta love
Look a certainty to stroll off with all the prizes
Acrobatics are not normally a strong point
For large grey or pink loxodontile creatures
Trunks and tusks are a challenge
They leave AnElephant unbalanced
But for these wee guys it seems to be second nature
This next mastodon looks like he is squashed in a box
And he does not look as if he is too comfy in there
Drawn by his sweet friend Anja
AnElephant has to warn you
He is a rock and roll hippy he is never a square
And now a little chap in a bottle
AnElephant visits him in a book shop in Venice
He can write 1,000 more stories
About its magic and glories
That just depends on how helpful his erudite new friend is
In Nice he sees a cousin who can fly
To AnElephant this is somewhat bewildering
And then outside Milan
This small pink Elephant can
Quite easily fit 4 or 5 children in
Now AnElephant meets another on his travels
On the interwebthingy that gets bumpy
This li’l cutie is starring
On the blog site of Caren
She calls this delightful li’l dude Doorstop Dumpy
So it is great fun to meet up with all the family
Who say don’t forget to come back soon and visit us
He says hi to Grandpappy
To keep the old geezer happy
But AnElephant is peripatetic he is sadly not ubiquitous
UnElephant fait toujours sourire
Meme derriere un soupir
Tes yeux d’enfant derriere la camera
Mon ami, un bonheur, une joie.
UnElephant soupire jamais
Il est tres content a Medville
Il dort comme un bébé
So no more to say
Parce qu’il reste dans son bed still
You may be interested to know that I’ve just begun a charcoal drawing of an elephant. My daughter loves animals and I’ve already drawn a giraffe, a pig, some dogs, a gorilla, a butterfly and a rabbit. I figured it was time to add an elephant to the collection that may one day be worth upwards of zero dollars.
AnElephant is always interested in the many representations of his kind.
Feel free to forward him a copy for inclusion in his next trans-global mammoth round-up!
And it may even reduce the value to a more manageable amount.
Than You for including me in your showcase
They all look so chubby and flappy
In Bolton there are many elephants to see
Here is a link, Bolton’s Elephants – Bolton.org.uk ,to show you, from me
Such a variety all gloriously happy
AnElephantCant believe this
Unless his sweet friend Caren told him
You can find mastodons
In various towns
But he didn’t know there are heffelumps in Bolton
Quite famous for them in fact. My old Bolton County Grammar School tie was emblazoned with them. Eh, those were the days, clomping round the corridors in my clogs!!!
These are excellent. I think Anja’s pachyderm is brilliant.
AnElephant’s friend Anja is as talented as she is kind and lovely.
ha and thank you 🙂
awww Thank you Al 🙂
You’re welcome 🙂 It is very cool. Love the colouring in it
Thank you for including “An Elephant for AnElephant”, as well as another thank you for inspiring the drawing. Never worry, he is quite comfy in his box and plays with some of my other favorite pieces of art. 😀
AnElephant thanks his lovely friend for her inspirational drawing.
Perhaps next time you can draw him in a circle so he can get around more easily?
hmmmmm I will see what I can do 🙂
