|The dove returning bore the mark|
Of earth restored to the long labouring ark;
The relics of mankind, secure of rest,
Oped every window to receive the guest,
And the fair bearer of the message blessd.
Dryden.To Her Grace of Ormond, Line 70.
|The dove was twice employd abroad, before|
The world was dried, and she returnd no more.
Dryden.To Her Grace of Ormond, Line 99.
