As long as I have known him the elephant
Has been making his slow way across the picture
Unaware he is a rubbing my mother gave me
After she and my father visited
It may be that my granddaughter, or hers,
Will be there when he reaches the frame's edge.
Chose well where you hang him; put him near
Some scene whose people will welcome
Stray elephants without undo fuss.
