The Old Astronomer by Charlie-Bowater on DeviantArt."Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light; I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night." from the poem 'The Old Astronomer' by Sarah Williams.
"Real life Dumbo" - more like photoshopped Dumbo. The ears have been enlarged and twisted around (you can see how they really attach on the big elephants), and it's been lifted off the ground. In real life, elephants can't jump (and certainly not fly).
