The Nightingale

These feathery and soft who fly aloft,
and sing so frail are called the nightingale.
The songs they sing are special tunes that bring
their long and sounding tales from tree top's wail.
Their calls in kind will still your troubled mind.
For all these birds will brave those who are slave
to see their guise, that will bless human eyes.
Since those who may soon crave this feathered knave
 will be as blessed and pleased to be at ease
and not dismayed at being sung or played.
Now these fine birds have enveloped the words
of love, that's made with 
thoughts of peace purveyed.
Each knows these rhythmic sounds are all around
to please our ear throughout the coming year. 
Fine days you'll see a nightingale be free
and glance by chance to hear these sounds appear.
The nightingale and dove both live for love
and help to mend while other sounds ascend.
For all these birds of peace have helped release
their tunes as friends while helping souls transcend.
