Poetry: “Alces alces”

The Latin name for moose, or elk as we call it in Europe.

***~***~***~***

Alces alces

By which name
Should I call thee
Your majesty
King of the forest
That stretches
Far and wide
A vast kingdom
Comprising continents
Where all see you
And feel awe
Your great bulk
Carried with
Such grace
Those antlers
Your mighty crown
Coveted by hunters
To be graced
By your presence
Is a gift to us all
