ELEPHANT

The giant creature stands on its platform

Wooden box impressed by weight of lore

Offering comfort and resilience to

Those who mind historical tradition

Powerful colossus sentimental

Survives steadily on land, its unique

Stature apparently limiting in

Reality not adequately quite

Efficient enough to withstand perils

Denoting humanity and still the

Gentle flatfoot remains largest living.
