Best Wishes 1.
by Tatyana Binovskaya

This translation is my attempt at depicting this magnificent mammal, beautiful, strong, emotional, vunerable, defensive, wise, unforgetful, to name but a few attributes, in all it’s complicated glory.

Grand To Be An Elephant – By Wayne Hepburn

How grand to be an Elephant, yessireeeee;
As strong and brave as anyone can beeeee;
And smart, and kind, you must agreeeee,
So swell and grand, it simply seems to meeeee,
That everyone should an Elephant want to beeeee.

OH! How grand to be a mighty pachyderm,
It’s quite a bit handsomer than a worm.

I could have ended up a bumble bee;
Instead He made me just the way I ammmm,
So big I can unearth a giant treeeee,
And no one dares turn me into a hammmm.

An Elephant, it’s truly fine to beeeee;
For nothing else on earth from A to Zeeee,
Quite compares to the lovely likes of meeeee-eee.
I surely must be nature’s apo-geeeee.

I’ve tried to think of a better thing but cannnnn’t;
The very best thing to be is an El-eeeee-phannnnnt.
