Baby Elephants At Play

Baby Elephants

Who does not love those baby elephants?
They are so adorable and funny,
They would be cute in pretty fancy pants,
As they follow their mommy while running.

Baby Elephant in Fancy Pants

A baby elephant when its newborn,
Will weigh about 260 pounds,
A really big baby but so adored,
By all the proud aunties standing around.

Like all babies, little elephants love
To climb up over and over again,
Just give the baby a big log to shove,
Or just shinny up and fall off for fun.

The ears on each baby are quite jumbo,
They can flap those big ears to help keep cool,
Or maybe pretend they fly like Dumbo,
But Mommie and Aunties they cannot fool.

Baby elephants so love to cuddle,
And they love to be held right on your lap,
Yet soon find out this causes some trouble,
For surely it could end in a mishap.

A very young baby is curious,
About the long funny thing on their face,
Is this a problem? Could be serious,
It really looks so out of place.

Babies love to play in the cool water,
They may be timid when first they see it,
But, love to splash as the day gets hotter,
As they get braver they fall and flee it.

It is fun playing in a mud puddle,
Run and show off, be so precarious,
Careful little one, you might befuddle
Yourself, and then you will get embarrassed.

No matter what these little ones will do,
We cannot but help to love them truly,
They are precious, Creator’s gift to you,
To help make us laugh and love joyfully.

Bye, Take Care

I have always liked to write.It is important to me that I write with spirit and heart. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. Thank you for visiting.

    They are so beautiful and funny and really smart. Animals are so underestimated in this world, and they have just as much right to live a safe and joyful life as we. Love all the vids, gorgeous creatures. Thanks for sharing Phyllis.
