The Call Of The Nightingale

Rating: 2.8

Awake! awake!
Sleep no more, my gentle mate!
With your tiny tawny bill,
Wake the tuneful echo shrill,
On vale or hill;
Or in her airy rocky seat,
Let her listen and repeat
The tender ditty that you tell,
The sad lament,
The dire event,

To luckless Itys that befell.

Wake the tuneful echo shrill, On vale or hill; .........In Jove's abode, with his ivory lyre, ......awake with the celestial symphony.....awake inside
