Once there was an elephant, Who tried to use the telephant- No! No! I mean an elephone Who tried to use the telephone-
(Dear me! I am not certain quite That even now I've got it right.) Howe'er it was, he got his trunk Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free, The louder buzzed the telephee- (I fear I'd better drop the song Of elephop and telephong!)
Thanks to the Beehive for suggesting this poetic week! This is one of my favorite poems from childhood. I am so very thankful to my first grade teacher, Mrs. Peccorino, for introducing me to it, and making us copy a poem each morning. Your class stands out among all the rest for your devotion to creative writing.
