Dutch song, lyrics by Ryan Maurice Roemer.

This is my personal take on white doves as symbols of peace.
I think there should be peace doves in many different colors.
They should represent all colors of the rainbow.
All colors are pure, good and beautiful.

When I was a little child back in the 1980s I often walked to a little island in my neigbourhood where I gave pieces of bread to birds. Somehow I stopped feeding birds when I got older. I don’t know why. Last Sunday on 7 June 2015 I decided to feed pigeons again. It was so nice to reconnect with these lovely animals. I’ve always loved pigeons. Back in 1986 when I was 7 or 8 years old I wrote my very first story about pigeons.

By the way, I gave pieces of bread to pigeons in Gouda last Sunday, but now I’ve read on the internet that bread is really bad for birds. I didn’t know! But I should have known, because I know that gluten is bad. I hope these sweet hungry pigeons won’t get sick. I should have bought some seeds and nuts instead. Anyhow these pigeons still seemed very happy…


Hier komt de regenboog.
Raak het hart met pijl en boog.
Kies iemand uit om van te houden
en op een dag gaan jullie trouwen.

Duiven willen vrede.
Duiven willen vrede.

Dit is een nieuw begin.
Wie niet waagt die niet wint.
Laten wij aan onze toekomst bouwen.
Oorlog verdwijnt als vijanden trouwen.

Duiven willen vrede.
Duiven willen vrede.
