Song Video


Once there was an elephant
Who tried to use the telephant--
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone--
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I've got it right. )
Howe'er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee--
(I fear I'd better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!).

i have to memorize this poem for my class and I almost got it down because my teacher taught me a way to remember stuff easily.So heres what i say,this is a great poem and if you have the right tools you can remember this great and creative poem.The author was a very creative person which is why this poem was published.Thank you,Laura E. Richards

Thank you for identifying the author. This was a favorite poem of mine as a child and I really think credit should be given where credit is due. Sometimes I forget also, but I hope her descendents (if any) don't have to fight to prove who wrote it.

Eletelephony was written by Laura E. Richards (1850-1943). Perhaps by her life span we might make the leap that a sense of humor and the writing of poetry are both good for one's health and longeivity!
