Twelve Days of Christmas #2: Two Turtle Doves

On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

"Two Turtle Doves" by Trudi Doyle
(Fine Art America)

Elegantly the snow falls down onto my finger tips
I put my sultry wet finger to my lips
It is cold to the touch, but boils deep red.
The warmth comes closer to bare
As our wings clasp around each other
And I can't stop this delightful feeling
The feeling of hearts soaring in the sky
Higher and higher, as we delve into a pile of snow
Its cold embrace nothing like the snowmen
But just cold enough to leave prickles on our nose.
Like two turtle doves who dive to the ground
Their hearts leaping over bounds
Knowing that this could be their last wish
But trust with each other a loving kiss
Underneath the twinkling stars at night
When the aurora shines most bright;
Like an ocean of green and red waves
Purple hairs and a yellowish haze.
It crashes upon us, but we don't care,
Because she is my turtle dove

And forever our lives we will share.

Question: "If there is someone who you love this holiday season, please show them how much you love them."


  1. I love this........being, instead of being given, the two turtle doves! Brilliant! The painting is lovely. I wonder if you have seen the youtube video on facebook these days, with two men hilariously acting out the 12 days of Christmas? Makes me smile just thinking about it....check it out! Thanks for stopping by my blog!! So nice to meet you.

    1. Thank you so much for the wonderful comment Sherry. :) I greatly appreciate that you enjoyed reading my poem. I'm glad to be able to meet such a wonderful poet like yourself.
      I will check out that video you mentioned. Maybe it will spark up another potential poem! :)
