  1. As magnificent a write as ever..! 🙂

  2. I had to look up “lugubrious”—what an unusual and lovely word….thank you for the introduction 🙂

  3. Don’t frighten it away and it will sing again…for it might be commenting on the state of the graveyard!

  4. The image and words speak of sadness…arriving too late..mournful..

    Oh, I had not thought of the dove’s song as lugubrious. Perhaps it was as well to arrive too late to join that.

  6. I find here profound loneliness very pronounced…lovely photo…

  7. I hope a happier song will come – sometimes it maybe good to be late

  8. One may just miss the boat sometimes! Rightly so MMT!


  9. Intriguing. Sometimes, I wish we could dig deep behind the story of every bird’s songs. At least she could find a companion in you. 🙂
