In this poem there may be a connection between man and animal. Bull riding is also a sport which includes the participation of man, therefore man can possibly related (again) to animal. In Greece the bull and other animals are identified with deities. One can infer that the Bull Moose may some how be related as “godlike”.

- It was a cold crisp Thursday morning, and three of my buddies and I are about to go moose hunting. We are going down to my cabin in a place called Taylor's Bay, which is about a nine-mile ride from our town by boat. The only way to get to it is by boat, so the weather was good, there was no wind and that would make for a great trip on the water. The weather has to be real bad if I can't get back in my boat because it is a 26 foot fiberglass boat that is really seaworthy and it has a shelter up on the front and that will keep all our supplies dry....

The pattern of stresses is lax enough almost to blur the distinction between verse and prose; the rhythm is that of a low-keyed speaking voice hovering over the descriptive details. The eyewitness account is meticulous and restrained. The poem concerns a bus traveling to Boston through the landscape and towns of New Brunswick.... [tags: Elizabeth Bishop The Moose Essays]
