She lay so still they thought her dead,
Her doves, that wheeled above her head.
But in her eyes a wild, remote,
Inhuman sorrow slumbered.

Takes instant wing, and seeks his native cote,
So speed my blessings from a barb'rous clime
To thee and Providence at Christmas time!

Curl upwards through the trees,
The pigeons nestled round the cote
On November days like these;
The cock upon the dunghill crowing,
The mill sails on the heath a-going.

A flood of mellow sunshine falls
In golden waves from roof to floor,
Revealing in its moss-grown walls
The "dove-cotes", where one still discerns
The fragments of old funeral urns.

The Kings of the North they were scattered abroad—
The Rajah of Dacca he slew them all.
Hot from slaughter he stooped at the ford,
And the dove—the dove—oh, the homing dove!
She thought of her cote on the palace-wall.
"The Dove of Dacca" by Rudyard Kipling
The pigeons from the dove cote cooed over the old lane,
The crow flocks from the oakwood went flopping oer the grain;
Like lots of dear old neighbours whom I shall see no more
They greeted me that morning I left the English shore.

In science:

Thus we chose not to include those detections, with the exception of one source at vhel = 122 km s−1 , which has previously been identified as a member of the Cen A group (CEN 5, Cˆot´e et al. 1997).
Optical Counterparts to Galaxies in the Cen A Group Discovered by HIPASS
The three known members within our search area which were not detected by HiPASS are Centaurus A itself, which is strongly self-absorbing at 21 cm, and NGC 5206 and ESO 272-G025, neither of which were detected in Hi by Cˆot´e et al. (1997) at a limit of < 5.5x106 M⊙ .
Optical Counterparts to Galaxies in the Cen A Group Discovered by HIPASS
The dwarf population only has two members which Cˆot´e et al. (1997) claim can be classified as early-type dwarfs, NGC 5206 and NGC 5237, based strictly on optical morphology.
Optical Counterparts to Galaxies in the Cen A Group Discovered by HIPASS
HiPASS would not detect galaxies that faint unless they had an ratio of MHI/LB > 7, while the Cˆot´e et al. (1997) study deliberately targeted late-type dwarf galaxies.
Optical Counterparts to Galaxies in the Cen A Group Discovered by HIPASS
If the Hi PASS and Cˆot´e et al. (1997) survey techniques have truly missed the corresponding early-type, gas poor galaxies in the Cen A group, then the luminosity functions of the two groups may differ significantly.
