47. Song of A Wild Dove

Coo Croo Coo…
Perching on the backyard apple tree
Singing a swingy pattern
Creating a doleful concern
A soft music for the beloveds oversea

Coo Croo Coo…
We grew up in the same settlement
Birdsong recalls old days  
O breeze brings my heart away
Through the clouds to previous events

Coo Croo Coo…
Awful situation separated our lives
Away from green forests
Rivers and mountain crests
The harmony of insects in the wild

Coo Croo Coo…
Soon the sky will miss the sunray
Passion inspires the dove
Fulfilling my heart with love
Of all the dearest dispersed faraway
