THE TURTLE-DOVE'S NEST.

Very high in the pine-tree

The little Turtle dove
Made a pretty little nursery,

To please her little love.
She was gentle, she was soft,

And her large dark eye
Often turned to her mate,

Who was sitting close by.

Coo,” said the Turtle-dove.

Coo,” said she.
“Oh! I love thee,” said the Turtle-dove.

“And I love THEE."
In the long shady branches

Of the dark pine-tree,
How happy were the doves

In their little nursery !

THE TURTLE-DOVE'S NEST.

TURTI

320

The young Turtle-doves

Never quarrelled in the nest,
For they dearly loved each other,

Though they loved their mother best.
Coo,” said the little doves.

Coo,” said she.
And they played together kindly

In the dark pine-tree.
