Under the Tickle Tree


Once there was a tickle tree
with feather leaves and honey seeds
that elephants would love to eat
and when they've eaten all deplete
the little ones would fall asleep.

The shady tickle tree was cool
the leaves will fall and tickle too
The happy babies's sleep to
roll in leaves twas such a treat
to laugh and hide and noisily seek
away from sun and prickly heat.


The tickle tree is far from here
Yet those who knows it's very near
exists in the land before our time
ask yourself but not your mind.
Hope you'll find the answer
as I have found mine.
