Isle Be Loving You Always

Desert Island Ele by Phil Burns

Desert Island Ele by Phil Burns

AnElephantCant stay away from interesting islands
He is so happy to be surrounded by sea
You have to go on a boat
Or a plane please take note
When he disembarks he knows he is free

An island can be tiny or gigantic
It may be a place with long summers of sun
If he goes to Australia
AnElephantCant come back paler
And while he is there he can count kangaroos and koalas for fun

Last year when he is on his long North American adventure
He has a trip to Alcatraz in famous San Francisco Bay
When he heads up to BC
A great place to see
He finds Granville Island is the best place to stay

His homeland has about 13,011 different islands
Some big and rugged and some small and cute
Arran and Skye
Have mountains reaching so high
But AnElephant’s favourite as you must know if you ever read his blog is Bute

You also know that he loves the Mediterranean
He visits Kos and Zakynthos and Crete
Ibiza and Minorca
Crete and Mallorca
Romantic isles with sun splashed beaches are really hard to beat

Last year on his birthday his friend Emmy gives him a present
A trip to Porquerolles off the cool Cote d’Azur
Perhaps no great size
But a slice of paradise
AnElephant believes that insular skies are somehow much bluer

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    I love islands too, as I love the water. The smaller the island the better!

    Perhaps elephant numbers in the wild are not dwindling – they’re merely on extended vacations 🙂
