Oliphaunt rock

Elefant rock

An oliphaunt is carved in the rock

it shelters a home of its own

in stone

dominating the countryside nearby

it is still

a remainder of a past of giants

where dinosaurs and mammoths and dragons

roamed the earth freely

Will those times return

where men and much larger creatures

can now live together at peace

as their understanding goes much deeper

than it used to

and men learn to read the hearts of beasts

discovering in them an unsuspected beauty

and the same research for love and consciousness

they were after during thousands of years

And then a new comradeship might develop

and the winged and marine creatures

might well decide to lead a life akin to men

and favour them too

as their right to exist is respected

and the value of their quest is recognized
