The Song on the Dawn

Updated on April 1, 2016

Poetry is the food of the soul. It's my greatest contribution to the world and an area I can always grow.

Today, the day dawns with the song of the dove, the bird of peace.

Its sweet call rings out in the first rays of the morning sun.

Love echoes in its voice as the melody bounces from the trees.

Yet it hides in the shyest way, waiting for just the right time.

Snow still covers the ground as it takes flight on the cold morning wind.

Through the frigid skies it sails afar, returning to its one true mate.

The eternal power of love is an unseen map which guides the bird.


Across the valley, in a place where no man and few beasts dare travel,

Another white bird sits atop a frozen branch, waiting patiently.

Dreaming of a summer day when love was ripe in the air for all to see.

On days when the light outshined the dark and memories were of joy

When upon the wind a whisper, no words, but a message nonetheless

I remember you my love; fly forth and all your dreams shall be revealed

Set a course to the middle of the valley and I shall be there for you.


The dove flies high above the frozen land, looking down on the melting snow.

It weaves its way to appointed place, with care and full of hope.

Steadfast and without delay for not to miss our great reunion

For one will arrive first and prepare the place, to light the beacon

The first shoots shall feed our bodies, and as the snow gives way

We shall gather the dried twigs of old to build our new home

And we shall close the distance between alone and together.


The coming moment when we reunite shall be the spark of forever

This cycle of life and the beauty of its many different seasons

Where almost everything changes but the few which are constant

The golden sun shall continue to rise in the east and set in the west

Every moment that we have been given will be full of wonderment

Never again will find ourselves living separate lives

For we have been blessed on our pathway by the peace of the dove.

    Ralph, you truly should pursue this creative side more often. You do have a talent for it. Enjoyable read.

    Thanks - I sometimes don't know where it comes from, but it's certainly fun

    A brilliant piece! One of your sublime ones for me. It seems that we are generally coloured by own own state of Consciousness, and again that changes frequently. Still, I really loved that piece! There is a story not to dissimilar in the ancient texts but this is creative, original and superbly expressed.

    That is why I find your contrasting character so interesting. You sometimes show remarkable intuition in your great pieces. Happy weekend!
