A Bird Sings Because It Has A Song

A Bird Sings Because It Has A Song




Garden Poem of the Day

Nightingales
By Grace Hazard Conkling

At sunset my brown nightingales
Hidden and hushed all day,
Ring vespers, while the color pales
And fades to twilight gray:
The little mellow bells they ring,
The little flutes they play,
Are soft as though for practising
The things they want to say.
It's when the dark has floated down
To hide and guard and fold,
I know their throats that look so brown,
Are really made of gold.
No music I have ever heard
Can call as sweet as they!
I wonder if it is a bird
That sings within the hidden tree,
Or some shy angel calling me
To follow far away?
