                XXIX
                DOVE

Like the dove with silver feathers,           Psalms 67:14.
which flew out of the ark for the third time
and did not return with an olive branch,           Genesis 8:121; 9:13.
but disappeared in the clouds beneath
the rainbow, the sign of a promise;
thus You, white dove of the heavens,
have come to tell us there is dry land,
a place where our spirit can take root
and where it can flourish for eternity!

autógrafo
Miguel de Unamuno
Translation by Armand F. Baker
