Ray, H. Cordelia

- My Easter Dove

My Easter Dove

There came a dove, an Easter dove,
When morning stars grew dim;
It fluttered round my lattice bars,
To chant a matin hymn.

It brought a lily in its beak,
Aglow with dewy sheen;
I caught the strain, the incense breathed,
And uttered praise between.

It brought a shrine of holy thoughts
To calm my soul that day;
I caught the meaning of the note
Why did it fly away?

Come peaceful dove, sweet Easter dove!
Above earth's storm and strife
Sing of the joy of Easter-tide,
Of light and hope and life.
