The Elephant is Slow to Mate - D. H. Lawrence

African Skies The elephant, the huge old beast,
       is slow to mate;
he finds a female, they show no haste
       they wait

for the sympathy in their vast shy hearts
       slowly, slowly to rouse
as they loiter along the river-beds
       and drink and browse

and dash in panic through the brake
       of forest with the herd,
and sleep in massive silence, and wake
       together, without a word.

So slowly the great hot elephant hearts
       grow full of desire,
and the great beasts mate in secret at last,
       hiding their fire.

Oldest they are and the wisest of beasts
       so they know at last
how to wait for the loneliest of feasts
       for the full repast.

They do not snatch, they do not tear;
       their massive blood
moves as the moon-tides, near, more near
       till they touch in flood.
