Oliphaunt

Grey as a mouse,
Big as a house,
Nose like a snake,
I make the earth shake,
As I tramp through the grass;
Trees crack as I pass.
With horns in my mouth
I walk in the South,
Flapping big ears.
Beyond count of years
I stump round and round,
Never lie on the ground,
Not even to die.
Oliphaunt am I,
Biggest of all,
Huge, old, and tall.
If ever you'd met me
You wouldn't forget me.
If you never do,
You won't think I'm true;
But old Oliphaunt am I,
And never lie.

L'Olifante

Grigio come un topolino,
Grande come una casa,
Ha un naso come un serpente,
Faccio tremare la terra,
Mentre calpesto l'erba;
Gli alberi si spezzano al mio passaggio.
Con le corna alla bocca
Cammino verso sud,
Grandi orecchie a sventola.
Da tempo immemorabile
Io passo di qua e di là,
Non stendersi mai a terra,
Nemmeno a morire.
Olifante sono io,
Il più grande di tutti,
Enorme, vecchio e altissimo.
Se mi avessi mai incontrato
Non ti dimenticheresti di me.
Se non lo fai spesso,
Non penserete che sia vero;
Ma il vecchio Olifante sono io,
E non mentite mai.
