Leaving Mallorca

These cooing doves
In pine trees
Soothe my soul
Their calm conversation
Carried by the warm breeze
I will wrap up
In my heart
And take with me

hi, laurie! is the picture one you took? these two look like mourning doves (which mate for life if i remember right) . and if they are or are closely related, their sound is indeed soothing and, when the air is warm, cool or cooling. in our last house mourning doves liked to hang out on our roof, so we were treated to their sound often. -glen
Lovely poem about the cooing dove
