Fying Elephant? Yay!

There's only one of those as far as I'm concerned, and it's this one! Thanks for reminding me, Tess, with your choice for Magpie #85. Here's my shadorma and a video for good measure...

Elephants
won't need those wings if
both ears flap!
Folks will clap
to see their bird-like gliding...
there'll be no hiding!

  1. That was enjoyment supreme, and bless Walt Disney!! What would we have done without him!! If wishes were horses then elephants would fly!! :)
    Birds will accept him
    Folks will clap,to see him fly
    But not his own kind
    Loved Dumbo the li'l Jumbo!!

  3. Okay then...the ugly duckling of fable leads to so many versions of the story. Disney told it well.

  19. Good timing as Disney is re-releasing Dumbo in Bluray this month. I too thought of him but also purple cows.
