Nightingale   What sweet voice the morning brings When my little lady sings. Angelic as the notes are carried I wonder if she could be married.   How sweet the morning's tease When she puts my soul at ease. The question is so cleverly parried But i wonder if she could be married.   She came to bless the early morning But left without a single warning. She flew away from where she tarried And i wonder if she could be married.
Author's Notes:
I wrote this many years ago for a friend of mine who is shy. He finally got the courage to speak to her. They have been married for 20 years. But i still haven't forgiven him for using my poem as his own.

whenever I see the word nightingale...I think of you, John.  with the poem that ends "when the nightingale sings" and now this've cornered the market.


this is the sweetest poem...what's a bit of plagerism between friends? haha ...pinching words can be tempting...maybe he could have at least added your name to  the bottom corner...nobody composes poetry quite like you I think he might have had to confess by now.
