Love Me Tender
Turtle Doves Do Not Have 'Second Marriages' – Appreciation for Loyalty: The Turtle Dove has a unique quality in that they mate for life. If its partner is taken away from it or killed, it will not seek out another mate, but will seemingly mourn – as it were – for her or him for the rest of its life. These emblems of love and faithfulness have inspired poetry in Shakespeare, being the subject of his poem 'The Phoenix and the Turtle'.
