144. Gentle Elephant


O elephant with majestic style
Your pleasing face
Brings an instant smile
Of all species, a lovely grace

You signify valour, strength
Yet of gentle bearing
Your trunk humble in length
Eyes deep, twinkling

Your ears feel divine
Tusks shapely, beautiful
You make the heart shine
Being friendly, dutiful

A happiness to children
To play, be merry
Without you, their joy barren
Lifting spirit with a flurry

A warming sight in Indian temple
Symbolic of Lord Ganesh
You stand tall yet simple
Of wisdom and silence, a mesh

May you live forever
Let poaching by man cease
With your quiet demeanour
Remind him to live for peace
