Elk and Earth

 

Upon the earth, the Elk’s hoof treads,
Imprinted,
Drawn upon the soil,
Before the rise of the sun,
A silence within the woods,
Across the pines and rocky terrain,
Sticks and logs forlorn,
The earth and the elk,
In wilderness,
A stream of abundance whirls,
An antler branch,
A tale told, in silence,
The wind, the only sound,
Under the evergreens of winter morning,
Beneath northern stars,
The elk and the earth chosen by the gods.
