Colombe - The Dove
La douce colombe - sweet dove.
Bird of peace
Calm and assured
At one with her sensuality and beauty,
Flying over this blood stained world
Casting a shadow of loveliness and hope.
As humankind looks down, when if they should look upwards
They would see the beautiful bird of peace,
Weeping for this toil hardened world,
With souls embittered with the fatigue and apathy of constant warfare.
The fire of endless anger,
Not seeking what is there, adrift in the skyway,
In the paths of pure flight,
The rays of healing light,
The sweetest shadow covering them,
With the gentlest wing span of mercy,
In the ways of peace,
La douce colombe, sweet dove.
