Little dove

Little Dove

Little dove upon the tree
As the day be at its end
How you look so lonely there
Like you have not a friend
You look at all that lovely seed
As day be passing by
It’s a cinch that you’ll be in that bowl
Before this day shall die.

Little dove among that seed
Head bobbing up and down
I see you as you eat your fill
What joy it seems, you’ve found
 It’s certain that you love this life
Though you wander all alone
It seems to me that seed you eat
Be the best thing you have known.

Little dove, the time is near
When you must go to bed
To harbor there in some safe tree
And rest your sleepy head
I hope this feed you have on me
Will make you brave and strong
So then tomorrow with the dawn
You can sing your morning song.

    Hi Peter, the dove, always makes me think of peace and Love. I don't think we'd mind doves at all at our end of the world, we're more likely to have seagulls these days. Once again Peter your gentle piece manages to bring a little peace to me. You never overdo your imagery, which is great for me. Right away I can see what your words want me to see, and as I say the words bring peace. I wish you and your wife a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May the coming year bring you all you seek, MIKE

    I like this work..Did you know that Dove are one of the species that mate for life and become very depressed if their mate dies?..I notice here that I don't hear them cooing in the winter months like I do in spring and summer..I see them still come to the food I put out though..Great work this one is..It has wonderful rhythm and rhyme..I noticed that you dropped by my page..Sara

    Thank you Sara, Our garden is filled with doves. they walk right under our dogs nose and he just lets them. I did not know about their mating for life. Nice of you to fill me in on this. Makes me love them even more...Peter

    I love this poem, it is so sentimental and full of lovely images. We have a bird feeder and a pretty robin is a visitor. Very best wishes Linda x
