Poems 0090丨ELEPHANT丨By Zbigniew Herbert

In truth, elephants are extremely sensitive and high-strung. They have a wild imagination which allows them sometimes to forget about their appearance. When they go into the water, they close their eyes. At the sight of their own legs they weep with frustration.

I knew an elephant who fell in love with a hummingbird. He lost weight, got no sleep, and in the end died of a broken heart. Those ignorant of the elephant′s nature said: he was so overweight.
