June Song

A song fluttered down in the form of a dove, and it bore me a message, the one word—love!  – Paul Laurence Dunbar

I heard a dove coo

somewhere high

in the branches

of a rising pine,

a soft good morning

note to begin

dawn’s early chorus,

prompt the robin’s

cheerful whistle,

cue the long

call of the blue jay,

and induce my deep 

and contented sigh.
