The Dove


"The Dove" is the fourth song of Siegmeister's The Face of War cycle, which sets five texts of Langston Hughes.

The Dove
by Langston Hughes

...and here is
old Picasso and the dove
and dreams as fragile
as pottery with dove
in white on clay
dark brown as
earth is brown
from our old
battle ground...

--The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes, p. 536
