Grey is Irr-elephant

The Elephant Poem


The elephant walks with the world on his back

He is tired and weary and worn

He thinks of the things that he has tried to change

And everything that has gone wrong.

He remembers the seas and the land and the hope

Back at the beginning of time

The air and the sun and the first signs of life

And the loud arrival of man.

Now all he has is the weight of the world

And a heart that is full of regrets

And the knowledge that through to the end of time

The elephant never forgets.
