    It was six men of Hindustan 
    To learn much inclined, 
    Who went to see the elephant 
    (though all of them were blind) 
    That each by observation
    Might satisfys his mind. 
    The first approached the elephant, 
    And happening to fall 
    Against his broad and sturdy side, 
    At once began to bawl:
    “God bless me! But the elephant 
    Is very like a wall!”
    The second, feeling of the tusk 
    Cried out, “ho! What have we here, 
    So very round and smooth and sharp? 
    To me it’s like a mighty clear 
    This wonder of an elephant 
    Is very like a spear!”
    The third approached the animal, 
    And happening to take 
    The squirming trunk within his hands, 
    Thus boldly up he spake :
    I see, the elephant is very like a snake! 
    The fourth reached out an eager han,
    And felt about the knee
    “What most this wondrous beast is like, 
    Is mighty plain ” He said 
    “This is clear enough the elephant 
    Is very like a tree!”
    The fifth who chance to touch the ear 
    Said: “Ehn the blindest man can 
    Tell what this resembles most ; 
    Deny the fact who can,
    This marvel of an elephant 
    Is very like a fan!”
    The sixth no sooner ‎had begun
    About the beast to grope, 
    Then, seizing on the swinging tail 
    That fell within his scope. 
    “I see” quoted he, “the elephant is very like a rope!”

    And so these men of Hindustan 
    Disputed loud and long, 
    Each in his own opinion 
    Exceeding stiff and strong, 
    Thought each was partly in the right, 
    And all were in the wrong! 
    So oft in theologic wars, 
    The disputants, I won,
    Rail on in utter ignorance 
    Of what each other mean,
    And prate about an elephant 
    Not one of them has seen.
