The Heart Of An Elephant - Poem by Nick krakana

I watched an elephant show today

And seeing all the love they had to convey

I wished the world could be like they

The heart of an elephant is a special one
Full of love and muddy fun

Please don't shoot them anymore 

To sell their ivory on a foreign shore

An elephant's memory is a precious one

Remembering the knife and the gun

These elephant angels that I see

So plainly here on my TV

Send messages to you and me

Across the miles that's what I see

Kindness is the key

But Oh that an elephant sees the heart

In a family of love never to part

We do have much to learn in turn 

From the ways of an elephants heart

Topic(s) of this poem: nature

Form: Ballad

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I watched a TV show were there is a program in Africa that takes in orpahned baby elephants when there mothers are shot by poachers just for there ivory tusks a despicable shameful act.
