Laughing Dove by Elizabeth Kendall


Available to buy on…

Come when the dove’s low cooing calls
to Spring’s first bursting bud.
Come when the honey-bee invites,
to Summer’s bounteous delights
to sunny days and moonlight nights,
the fruitful field and wood.

Martha L Hoffman.

Thanks so much!!
The Laughing Dove (Stigmatopelia senegalensis) is a small pigeon which is a resident breeding bird in the tropics in Africa south of the Sahara, the Middle East and southern Asia east to India. In India it is also known as the Little Brown Dove. Probably as the result of stowaways from Africa or India, the bird is also found in a localised area of Western Australia — in and around Perth and Fremantle.
Dedicated to my friend Maree Clarkson, just because she adores all animals!
