AnElephantCant go on a boat trip
Without thinking that he is on holiday or vacation
That is an actual real rule
Not just one he makes up ‘cos it’s cool
So that is what he does for last week’s birthday celebration
He sets out from the port of Hyères
In sunshine under blue November skies
To the beautiful Isle of Porquerolles
Where angels set out their stalls
Because this is clearly an exquisite extension of a perfect paradise
This is a totally protected environment
Where Mère Nature is allowed to do her own thing
A million flowers and trees
Still hosting wopses and bees
And a myriad of wee birdies sweetly selflessly sing
The high seaside cliffs are what the French call Les Calanques
Rugged and steep and just a little bit scary
AnElephant stands at the top
Looking far down the drop
And thinks this looks the ideal place to spot mermaids and fairies
He sees a wondrous windmill and a life-saving lighthouse
Which prevents unwary ships sailing onto the rocks
A 16th-Century fort
Whether you are fit or not
These can all be reached by leisurely and well sign-posted walks
The little port is not much more than a village
But there is an abundance of bonnie boats cosily berthed
The lovely town square
Has courts for the boules players
This island is as inviting as anywhere on AnElephant’s earth

AnElephantCan Rock in Porquerolles!
Sorry,… round the clock It rolls
On my tongue and In my little mind.
It seems so long ago that I was there
I loved the island, it is quite a find
Il y a de la magie toute pure dans l’air.
AnElephantCant rock n roll on the whole
He prefers a wee stroll round Porquerolles
A beautiful isle
Makes AnElephant smile
And he writes this post its wonders to extol
Paradise indeed. A beautiful place to spend a birthday. Hope you had a happy birthday, my dear Elephant 🙂
AnElephant has a great birthday, thank you, and is now 117 – or is it 127? – years old.
Sounds idyllic. Love your pics. 🙂
It is indeed.
And thank you, but in a place like this the pics kinda take themselves!
