ELLIE THE ELEPHANT
Thea Haskett Macol
Ellie the elephant went out to play,
On a blustery winter's day.
Blowing bubbles from her nose
And golden rings upon her toes.
Stomping along so merrily
Looking for something to do or see.
She came upon a crocodile
Wearing a suspicious smile.
Hello said Ellie.
How are you?
Where do you come from?
What do you do?
Well I sit in this marsh and I have the munchies
I'm thinking right now don't your toes look crunchy.
My toes! Cried Ellie you may not eat
For they are an important part of my feet.
Ellie marched off all in a huff
And started looking for other stuff.
She came upon a little mouse
Living in a little house.
I sit in my home eating my cheese
Waiting for an elephant to terrify and tease.
Eeeck! Cried Ellie and off she flew
Off to find something different and new.
She came upon a great big bear
Covered in coal-black hair.
I look for hives full of sweet honey
Right now I see a nose that is funny.
That's not a very nice thing to say
I think that I will be on my way.
Tired, lonely a little blue
Ellie didn't know what next to do.
(Just) When about to call it a day
She came upon something (quite) large and gray.
My dear elephant friend can't you see
That you look just the same as me?
I'm an elephant just like you
Sadly enough we're two of a few.
Let's stick together as traveling friends
We'll have (many) adventures and fun that never ends.
