Fly Little White Dove

31 Days of Promise

31 Days of Promise, Day 9

Fly Little White Dove, Fly – The Bells

Why This Song? Maybe it’s just because I was a teen in the 70’s, but it seems to me that that was the decade with the best Peace and Harmony songs. (Though the 60’s definitely had some keepers.) I’ll leave that for the musicologists to debate. Meanwhile, this song, which you probably never heard of unless you were a teen in Canada in the 70’s. It’s easy to learn. It sings of love and togetherness even in times of darkness. It has a dove and clapping, and it’s just one that you can see yourself singing along with a crowd at a concert, everyone swaying and clapping and singing together in a moment of harmony. So yeah. Fly, little white dove. Fly.
