Mourning dove,mourning dove–

How are you today…

Your gentle cry I happened by,

You sound so far away!

Mourning dove, mourning dove….

How do you fare…

Have you made a goodly nest,

Surviving young with care?

Mourning dove, mourning dove…

The winter draweth near…

Many bird soon go south,

Will you be lodging here?

–Jonathan Caswell
