The Nightingale Song

The Nightingale Song

By Ed Roberts

The Nightingale Song

 

The nightingale knows there are hawks, owls, and eagles

In the sky

 

The nightingale knows there are cats, wolves, and dogs

On the ground

 

The nightingale knows about snakes, giant spiders, and even

Man

 

Yes, the nightingale knows of all of these things

He knows they exist

And are always waiting

For him

 

Still

The nightingale

Sings

 

Ed Roberts
