Strange Old Dove hears Withay.
Linguist's Ear.
Gets me when I mispronounce my words.
When I'm done she tells me
Which of my stories she liked.
Seems like a funny little bird.
I want you.
I want you to keep on sitting,
Keep on listening,
And tell me to go on.

Strange Old Dove takes her time to rise.
She dozes and coos for hours.
And I'll never stop her
Because it's wrong to interrupt
The gentle rest that she loves.
I need you.
I need you to close your eyes,
Lay your head.
I'll be right here in the bed.

Strange Old Dove flies with me
Around our neighborhood.
She's my very own force of good.

I love you.
I love you.
