    this poem made me smile. ah yes, we can be taken by different types of beauty but then are reminded that our beloveds too have bodily functions. but that has stopped me from being taken again and again. -gk (Report) Reply

    When nature calls we're all mortal, even those birds with a sweet song, need to respond. (Report) Reply

    It's a reply to Wordsworth by Coleridge! Brief expression of his ideas about his Nightingale! It's worth reading. (Report) Reply

    blank verse but STALE was in The Nightingale by W. Wordsworth (Written in April,1798) ! ! ! ! !

    no! there was no stale or rotten verse! ! ! !

    but full of joy for nature-

    And hark! the Nightingale begins its song
    Most musical, most melancholy [4] Bird!
    A melancholy Bird? O idle thought!
    In nature there is nothing melancholy.

    yeah in nature there is nothing melancholy or dejection..................
