This piece is about a local landmark. Hopefully self explanatory , I’ve included the song as it illustrates the point, the band being called ‘The Elephant Trees’ , the band being from the town.
The Elephant Trees
They’re just trees,
a small copse up on the brow
above the town yet some children see
what they believe to be,
amongst the branches, twigs and leaves
an elephant standing there, even now.
and could be many a creature
but has always been that same one,
ever there in the sun
But it’s odd as there’s no trunk,
an elephant’s defining feature.
for decades have gazed at the hill,
fiercely claiming those elephant trees
swaying in the breeze.
My sister when small
fell prey to its pull and loves all elephants still.
