    Not half so swift the trembling doves can fly,
    When the fierce eagle cleaves the liquid sky;
    Not half so swiftly the fierce eagle moves,
    When thro' the clouds he drives the trembling doves.

With open murmurs own their loves

Pursue their unpolluted joys:

The downy quiet of their nest.

I heard a Stock-dove sing or say
His homely tale, this very day;
His voice was buried among trees,
Yet to be come at by the breeze:
He did not cease; but cooed--and cooed:
And somewhat pensively he wooed:
He sang of love, with quiet blending,
Slow to begin, and never ending;
Of serious faith, and inward glee;
That was the song,--the song for me!

Till it get wing, and flie away with Thee.
