My Beautiful Dove

My beautiful dove

From  the mountains of Urayoán,

The one with grey-winelike plumage,

with the Caribbean deep-blue eyes;

I look on the dirt roads,

the sanctuary of the mountains,

the Savanna of sugarcane fields

And not seeing you there,

Perched on the Orange tree,

Neither in the water pond

Refreshing and crystalline;

My hope did not die

To see you again my dove,

With the Caribbean deep-blue eyes

burning with love.

    Read slowly this poem with its symbol of a beautiful dove shows great tenderness. I love the positive ending on hope. A lovely romantic verse.

              Fantastic to hear, me also
              I\\\'m concentrating on it and
              Not writing much poetry
              At the moment. But finding
              Time to read and comment
              On work such as yours...
              Time really well spent..
