Elephant

Written for:  April PAD - Day 19
"Write an animal title poem."


Elephants never forget,
that is what they say.
It is not always true for me.

I love when people bring peanuts for me,
the scent of those people I never forget.
Do not feed the elephants, some say.

If I were to have my say,
I would ask you to bring spicy peanuts to me
but you would probably just forget

An elephant can never forget,
the scent stays is what they say.
Please come back and visit me.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
