These icy morsels
will not quell my hunger pangs—
Spirit, feed my heart!

My heart is in anguish within me, the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror overwhelms me. And I say, “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest; yea, I would wander afar, I would lodge in the wilderness, I would haste to find me a shelter from the raging wind and tempest.”
 
Psalm 55:4-8, Revised Standard Version
 

If I were a dove,
I would fly to seek my rest
in the wilderness.

my heart Your covert.
