The Dove by Ewan McColl

Well the dove she's a pretty bird, and she sings as she flies

She brings us glad tidings and she tells us no lies

Well she flies in the mountains and the valley so low

And if you live peaceful then she never will go

Come all you young men, take a warning by me

Don't you go for a soldier, don't you join no army

For the dove she will leave you and the raven will come

And death will come marching to the sound of a drum

And come all pretty young girls, come walk in the sun

And don't let your young men ever carry a gun

For the gun it will scare her and she'll fly away

And then there'll be weeping by night and by day

What analysis could you make about this poem? What is it about? Any symbols?

It would be great if you gave some web cites that had some information about this poem. Thank you in advance.
