Small

Small..... The small brown nightingale sings From left bough of an insignificant tree He brings not much Just love and a touch Of everything that wrenches his Heartstrings In his world the notes are beautiful Blissfully unaware His heartsichord strings are all but dishevelled So never fill the air

So sweet and lovely this little poem is. Reminds me of the fairy tale called the Nightingale, whose song cured a king.

Enjoyed reading this afternoon..I don't think that I have ever heard or seen a Nightingale..I need to check and see if they are around here..Here we have Whip-Poor-Will that sings at early evening, night and early morn and also the Owls hoot also..Thanks for stopping by..Sara
