nightingale

How soft you sing your song tonight, oh gentle ‘gale
perched on top the browned-limb mango tree.
Will you sing bright the moon that wears so pale?
and Swoon my lover’s eyes to wake to me?

what lovely melody dear bird of night,
so somber-sweet the wind that claims your art,
do carry your sweet breath to this frail ear,
and soothe a boy who bears a heavy heart.
