DOVES

He came in smallness,
Gentle and sensitive,
To be this sacrifice -
The turtle-dove.

And as a dove
Finding rest for the sole of its feet,
The Holy Spirit
Had descended upon Him.

He sees His Bride
In her uniqueness -
His undefiled,
His dove.

And sends His own
Amid the world’s wolves
To be sensitive and gentle,
Guileless as doves.

  1. the dove is my favourite bird that comes to our bird feeder for a bite to eat and their gentle coos reward us every day as we hear them in the evening...they surely are just as gentle as the lamb and just as full of sweetness as the lord jesus.
