The Turtle-Dove

Gardens laden with turtle-doves
Melancholy music tunes of love
Tender, gentle turtle-dove…
Surrounding Jordan new life is born
Melodies of happiness in the sunlit morn
Low rising coos with the peace that it brings
The turtle-dove connecting, all, as she sings
A love song orchestrated by the King of kings…
Where will you go when your heart is torn?
Who will you embrace when life is forlorn?
Noah in his wisdom sent a dove to explore…
Is life to be given to mankind once more?
Turtle-dove returning through a window not a door…
Land was proven they would live forevermore…
Then down through the ages God’s love He would pour,
Through Jesus His son; whom He loved and adored…
A dove was sent to praise the Lord
When you hear the coo of the turtle-dove
Know you’re not forgotten you are forever loved!
Turtle-dove cooing, coo, coo, coo…
God is saying, “My precious child, I love you!

The Soul Takes Flight Poetry by MS O’Neill
Psalm 68:13 New King James Version (NKJV) Though you lie down among the sheepfold, You will be like the wings of a dove covered with silver, And her feathers with yellow gold.”
Luke 3:22 New International Version (NIV) and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
Genesis 8:8-10 New King James Version (NKJV) He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from the face of the ground. But the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned into the ark to him, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her, and drew her into the ark to himself. And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent the dove out from the ark.
I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often. Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
