Majestic Matriarch

These awesome mammals
pachyderms that walk the land
dominating the horizon
looking so majestic and grand

Plodding through the sparse scrub
she`s watching every thing around
able to keep the herd in check
with just one single low sound

Her presence is so powerful
yet she`s such a loving creature
need to protect these elephants
they are a national treasure

With two curled ivory tusks
and her long slender trunk swaying
this wonderful old matriarch
her sparkling eyes she`s displaying

So through this awesome landscape
watching these animals walk by
lets remember they are dwindling
we need to keep the numbers high

Standing here watching the Savannah
knowing all life here has it`s worth
I love to see the creatures roam
admiring all of Mother Earth
