The handwritten poem -- which is part of the massive Elvis auction going on at gottahaverockandroll.com -- is called "Ode to a Robin," and was sometimes recited by Elvis on stage and at one point was used as the answering machine message at his home.

Presley's poem could be yours for a hunka, hunka change -- an estimated 4-5 thousand bucks.

Fun fact: We're told former President Bill Clinton has ordered a catalog for the sale.
