Song Of The Nightingale - Poem by Gleb Zavlanov

Singly sweetly in its tree
Caressing clouds in Heaven’s dale
Singly softly, sweet to me
This gracious, little nightingale

Song of beauty carried through
By an echo, light and free
Singing softly as it flew
On the wings of liberty

Chirping high beneath the skies
On a sweet and gentle scale
Unearthly beauty as it flies
This gracious little nightingale

The hymn of love passed ever on
Across each cliff, each mountain peak
And one cannot resist but say
O! Gracious nightingale, to all but speak

Let your voice, your inner voice
Unearth itself to all, to me,
Singing softly, singing sweet
The nightingale upon the tree

Voice carried through the clouds above
Echoing off each a seraph’s sugar white wing
And one cannot resist but shout
O! Dear nightingale, sweet nightingale sing

And let your voice, your inner strides
To Heaven’s summit, itself set free
Singing softly, singing sweetly
Light upon the tender tree

And all that try to resist with might
Tried and tried, to no avail
And none could resist but sing themselves
“O! Sing, sweet nightingale.”

Let the world hear your song
Let the world hear and they’ll
Sing by you, your pleasant song
“O! Sing, just sing, sweet nightingale”
