I have an affinity for mourning doves. I watch them right outside my window, every morning. They mate for life.


GOOD MOURNING DOVE

I heard your cry this morning

Searching for your mate

You seemed to cry please hurry

It’s breakfast, don’t be late.

 

You sat upon the wire

And watched the world fly by

The other birds don’t bother you

I saw your eagle eye

 

You called once more

I thought I heard you cry

Where is your mate

Did she fly on by?

 

You sat alone upon the fence

Looking all the day

Calling out to her

Your call, it seemed to say

 

Please find your way

Home to me

I don’t know

What to say

 

I heard your cry this morning

It seemed to me you said,

Good mourning dove

Welcome home my love.

Wonderful uplifting write, Kathryn. Birds always usher the coming of a new day with their songs of praise to God. Enjoyed this.

Mourning Doves are also some of my favorite creatures in this world! I have several special stories about them...and I hold those stories with fondness in my heart.
