808. The Voice of the Dove
 
By Joaquin Miller
 
 
COME listen, O Love, to the voice of the dove,
Come, hearken and hear him say,
There are many To-morrows, my Love, my Love,—
There is only one To-day.
 
And all day long you can hear him say        5
This day in purple is rolled,
And the baby stars of the milky-way—
They are cradled in cradles of gold.
 
Now what is thy secret, serene gray dove,
Of singing so sweetly alway?        10
“There are many To-morrows, my Love, my Love,—
There is only one To-day.”
