Horton Hatches the Egg

I meant what I said
And I said what I meant….
An elephant's faithful
One hundred per cent!

And it should be,
it should be, it SHOULD be
like that!
Because Horton was faithful!
He sat and he sat!

"My goodness! My gracious!"
they shouted. "MY WORD!
It's something brand new!
IT'S AN ELEPHANT-BIRD!!"

Beautiful poem...reminds me of times long ago, when a wife would leave a candle burning in the window, waiting for her love to return from wherever they had ventured (be it sea or war) . Nice. Hugs, Dee
