Coo-Ooo-coo,

I stop my typing,

               look up from the computer,

                            try to determine the source of the haunting sound.

Coo-Ooo-coo,

            TV muted,

                      I step to the door,

                              venture outside scanning the limbs of the barren trees.

Evergreen wall encloses the yard,

Coo-Ooo-coo,

Low hanging clouds stifle the call,

Coo-Ooo-coo,

Cardinal perched high in the maple tree,

Cocks his head to the sound,

Coo-Ooo-coo,

Everyday the mourning dove sings

                                            Its haunting tune

                                                                 Outside my window.

Two morning doves resting in the maple tree.
