C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
From ‘Art’
By James Thomson (1834–1882)
 
IF you have a carrier-dove
  That can fly over land and sea,
And a message for your Love,
  “Lady, I love but thee!”
 
And this dove will never stir        5
  But straight from her to you,
And straight from you to her,
  As you know and she knows too,
 
Will you first insure, O sage,
  Your dove that never tires        10
With your message in a cage,
  Though a cage of golden wires?
 
Or will you fling your dove?—
  “Fly, darling, without rest,
Over land and sea to my Love,        15
  And fold your wings in her breast!”
