CD Sunday Challenge - Poetry Corner

I have made a 6 by 6 card using a Vintaj CD "Fading India" working in CA2.  The poem is the first verse of John Godfrey Saxe's ( 1816-1887) version of the famous Indian legend.
It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind.
The link is here if you would like to read the rest.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, all your comments are much appreciated.

  6. I love elephants Jen so this card is a winner for me but the poem is so very different and I'm another who hasn't heard of it so may just have to check it out.
    Thanks for sharing this with us at CD Sunday and for showing me yet another digi kit I may have to have!
