    Awesome
    Great imagery and fantastic storyline with fine flow....I loved it,
    Down from the purple mist of trees on the mountain,
    lurching through forests of white spruce and cedar,
    stumbling through tamarack swamps,
    came the bull moose
    to be stopped at last by a pole-fenced pasture.

    This is an absolutely brilliant poem. Symbolism is obvious... just in the first line- down, meaning that he has come from 'up' or power, then purple, which symbolizes royalty, purple mist- somewhat magical.Truely an astounding poem. (Report) Reply
