Chicken crate
by Henry Burt Stevens

standing in the crowd
with a chicken crate

the lady reached down
and sliding the wood door

reached in with two hands
and removed a snow white

dove, lifiting her hands
above her head she gently

tossed the white dove up
into flight and out of sight

her chicken crate held
about a dozen more

but the TV camera panned
away to the crowd milling

out the courtroom door,
yet i thrilled to have seen

the dove released and
wondered about the dozen others,

many, many millions
of people saw what i saw

and did they see this beautiful
symbol of peace and resolution

that had appeared, and could
there be hope more doves

would have occasion
to be released?
