    Hi James...I believe you are now becoming a very fine poet. My gosh...this is a wonderful write...you display emotions and wonderment and feelings that are right on the target. I like how you build the entire piece carefully into a crescendoing climax that has a most perfect ending. Perhaps just one correction...on just this one line...

    'How did this silent dove make feel like this? ' You may want to inser the word 'me' between make and feel...other than that...this is very well done...very well done...
