Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Dove
 
The dove returning bore the mark
Of earth restored to the long labouring ark;
The relics of mankind, secure of rest,
Oped every window to receive the guest,
And the fair bearer of the message bless’d.
        Dryden.—To Her Grace of Ormond, Line 70.
  1
The dove was twice employ’d abroad, before
The world was dried, and she return’d no more.
        Dryden.—To Her Grace of Ormond, Line 99.
