“The Doves”

This week’s gargleblaster ultimate question: “Why do birds suddenly appear?”

 

“The Doves”

My messengers, two doves, of silent wing
did settle just outside my windowsill.
In early light, they stopped their lofty sing.
My knowledge of their wistful pause did thrill:

Heard low moan from their peaceful breast:
“Love calls all to the test.”
