Poems My Grandmother Taught Me

The Tall And Short Of It

An elephant is big and strong,
So big and strong is he
That all the other animals
Fear him dreadfully.
That is, all the animals but one
Who’s not afraid at all.
A very tiny, grey mouse
Stands by the elephant tall.
And who do you think is afraid?
Why, the elephant trembles and quakes!
And the very tiny, grey mouse
Laughs as the elephant shakes!
