Post #4: Story or Poem Analysis

The poem is about an elephant traveling across Laos. The poem describes how the elephant looks and moves. It mentions the symbolism behind the elephant. There was a lot of good imagery in this poem. The author used words like “imitating” “dawdling” and “rising” to describe the elephant’s mannerisms and behavior.

I noticed that the author used a different line for every description they gave. I think this way of writing helps emphasize the importance of what they’re trying to describe. I think the main idea of this text was to show the importance and symbolism of the elephant.
