牋牋牋? Mourning Dove

牋牋牋? ?1997 Steven Sellors, Grand Bay, NB, Canada


牋牋牋? What do we call this magical man?? The Bard of Grand Bay? Poet of the unenfranchised, speaker for the furry few?? The man that won the heart of Cathryn Ward, eh? And ours, so many times over, with each song he makes. ?Our humanity grows a little with every song of his we love.?Steve says it's a song from the adoptee to the birth mother.


Gordon- 12-string guitar


牋牋牋牋牋?I have a house?- I have a home

牋牋牋牋牋?I have a place where wildflowers grow

牋牋牋牋牋?I have some trees, where squirrels can nest

牋牋牋牋牋? And mourning doves can take their rest ?/p>


牋牋牋牋牋?I have a dog ?I have a song

牋牋牋牋牋?I have to let the mystery roll on

牋牋牋牋牋?I am alive ?I am in love

牋牋牋牋牋?I want to tell the mourning dove ?/p>


牋牋牋牋牋?But when she flew she did not sing

牋牋牋牋牋?The cold wind whistled on her wing


牋牋牋牋牋?O do not grieve, sweet mourning dove

牋牋牋牋牋?Your sad old song is a song of love


牋牋牋牋牋?On the day when I was new

牋牋牋牋牋?You held me once ?no one held you

牋牋牋牋牋?I think of you as a mourning Dove

牋牋牋牋牋?That only flew on wings of love




Mourning Dove is recorded on the album In the Kind Land
