I read today that Cecile de Brunhoff, the original creator of Babar the Elephant stories died Monday. As a child I loved these stories. As a parent I read them to my children. This is offered as a small tribute to her gift of storytelling.

The town of Celesteville mourns today
A beloved friend has passed away.
Flora, Pom and Alexander cry
As each says a sad, but royal goodbye.
Celeste, always a lady, always a queen,
Maintains her regal and stately mien,
While Babar the King, honoring the debt
Whispers, “Cecile, elephants never forget.”
