Bad Reflection


I watched two ring doves sit together
They came to visit almost everyday
Other birds came and fed alone
But they were always different
Two very shy lovers as one, always
I often thought how and where they met
How they planned and built their nest
Then one day there was just one
I watched from my window
It seemed lost sitting alone, later
I found two wings like a small angel
Imprinted on my kitchen window
Below the dove lay still on the ground.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
