The Wishing Elephant

by Mary E. Lowd

Better than wishing on a star
That only streaks once
Across the sky
A single line
Of light

Wishes granted from afar
By flying elephants
Can’t be denied—
So pink and fine
What a sight!

But if you wanted more
See where they went
So you might find
The wishing mine
—a true delight
