Tender Elephants

Majestic motherly mammals
meandering along the trail
linked together like a chain
from their long trunks to slender tail

a mother and her young baby
are protected by the whole herd
tender touches coax the young one
throaty sounds of happiness are heard

emotional and tender creatures
caring for each family member
they mourn openly for their loved ones
elephants will always remember

I love being given challenges and a friend set a the task of writing about elephants and how they show emotions in three verses.  This is what I came up with.
