The Nightingale Is Mute - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

The nightingale is mute
And does not sing:
The wind warbleth not
To the green leaves
This stillness of the night.

The nightingale is mute
A rat the silence breaks
Rustling and running
Leaves rise and fall
Upturned by the rat feet.

And the wan moon
Looks down indifferent:
For the nightingale is mute
And does not sing.
