THE DOVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Out of the sunshine and out of the heat
Last Line: Since the dove fluttered down to its home in my breast!
Subject(s): Doves


OUT of the sunshine and out of the heat,
Out of the dust of the grimy street,
A song fluttered down in the form of a dove,
And it bore me a message, the one word -- Love!

Ah, I was toiling, and oh, I was sad:
I had forgotten the way to be glad.
Now, smiles for my sadness and for my toil, rest
Since the dove fluttered down to its home in my breast!
