[Asian elephants, tropical evergreen forest setting.]
One day as I was walking with my grandad by my side,
I skipped along beside him as I tried to match his stride.
We passed the pretty heart-shaped tree, and watched the lemurs dream.
Then skimmed some stones across the surface of the silver stream.
Grandad walked ahead because he always knew the way.
He’d walked it many times before but suddenly, today,
My grandad stopped and looked confused. I asked, ‘Where should we go?’
He turned to me and shook his head and murmured…
‘I don’t know.’
