Sounds from the Woods
© By Mary Nida Smith

Mourning dove at daybreak
Hiding in the woods.
Its haunting voice rides the wind
Coooooo-woo over and over again
Until it reaches beyond the trees.
Its wooing call continues
Loud and strong each morning
The cries of losing a mate or
The wooing voice of a lover
Needing a lifetime vow
To help raise a family
As two “turtle doves”
Hiding in the woods.
