Chapter 2, Verse 11 - 13 from Song of Solomon
King Solomon


For, lo, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth;
The time of the singing of birds is come,
And the voice of the turtle
Is heard in our land;
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
And the vines with the tender grape
Give a good smell.

Solomon (990 B.C. – 931 B.C.) was the son of David and the third king of Israel. Noted for his wisdom and success in overseeing numerous building projects during his 40-year reign, Solomon supposedly wrote several books of the Bible, including Song of Solomon. Experts disagree, however, on the validity of that claim.

Some of the most beautiful poetry ever composed can be found in the Holy Bible. This is a wonderful example. Great choice for the day

The spring voices we hear here in Kentucky are the spring peepers - and they are out in force despite our recent very cold nights. Thanks, Jayne!

Ah, Yes! Know this text. Gilbert is right about "turtle dove." With that said, the Bible's penchant for poetry is often overlooked and underrated. Thank you, Jayne.

"Turtle" might be shorthand for "turtle dove."

I have never heard a turtle's voice.
