The Ellie Story
There was an elephant named Ellie, who hailed from New Delhi.
She was born the size of a jumbo teacup,
and from birth was a sign of good luck, for her trunk always pointed up.
All that knew her called her their lucky charm,
for with Ellie around everyone shone in their best form.
She also was know for her sweet disposition,
exemplifying all of the best pachydermic traits, myths and traditions.
Ellie was always impeccably well dressed,
her belly covered with a colorful embroidered blanket,
which matched her jeweled headdress and anklets.
She was the crowning highlight to all processions.
Her beauty and unique physique made her destined,
to find parade queen as her profession.
Ellie’s over sized ears were always open and ready to listen.
She was known for her memory but more importantly, for her loyalty.
She never once divulged, judged or asked questions,
so naturally she heard many discussions, received many confessions,
and was privy to all sorts of information,
Everyone said that she was the best friend they could have ever imagined,
and it was this special quality that made her an elephant legend.
