A familiar tune

 

1

 

The new day peaks its head just above the night

and a mourning dove begins his soulful tune,

Waking the Sun, his melody glides the currents of the dawn

Coo, coo-dee – COO, coooo coo

Coo, coo-dee – COO, coooo, coo

 

Why does he sing, this morning minstrel, … what moves him so?

Does he call for his mate to lead her home?

Does he sing for friends,

for family

for loss?

Does he sing for his Creator?

… or maybe, I imagine,

just

for

me?

Suddenly a flurry of wings breaks the stillness of the air,

catches my eye

and stops the beating of his song.

… I have my answer:

His sweetie’s come home.

His song pauses for a small moment – a morning peck, I suppose –

and quietly his song starts up again, a duet this time

 

COOooOOOO!

            coo ku

COOooOOOO!

            coo ku

 

In my heart

it calls…

the echo of a familiar tune

 

Hope is real

            Love is all

Life is good

            Love is all

The new day peaks its head just above the night

and a mourning dove begins his soulful tune,

Waking the Sun, his melody glides the currents of the dawn

… a day of hope, I expect.
