Famous quotes containing the words antlers and/or branching:

    your antlers like seaweed,
    your face like a wolf’s death mask,
    your mouth a virgin, your nose a nipple,
    your legs muscled up like knitting balls,
    your neck mournful as an axe....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The moose will, perhaps, one day become extinct; but how naturally then, when it exists only as a fossil relic, and unseen as that, may the poet or sculptor invent a fabulous animal with similar branching and leafy horns ... to be the inhabitant of such a forest as this!
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
