The Elephant

by Annette Wynne

The elephant is very large
And clumsy as a wooden barge,
With legs like tree-trunks, yet he's mild
And gentle as a little child.

The elephant walks far away
And sees strange children in their play,
And carries logs and iron bars
As easily as motor-cars.

The elephant's a great big beast—
Not beautiftil, but good, at least,
Strong as a tree, but withal mild
And gentle as a httle child.
