If I could be an Elephant

by Indigo Ashworth

If I could be an Elephant For only just one day, I’d use my trunk to water flowers And help the firemen spray. I’d blow fresh air to cool them down And fan them with my ears, Then tickle them from far away Whilst drinking all their beers!
I’d pick up litter with my tusks Then stomp off down the dump, And roar as loudly as I could To drown out Donald Trump!
But of all the things I’d like to do There’s one that is the best, I’d give the world a memory Lest We Forget the rest…

Indigo was eight, when she wrote this poem. She recited it in our SACRED NATURE event at Arundel Festival 2016.
