Alternate Author Name(s): Davies, W. H.
Subject(s): Birds; Nightingales; Time

HOW many buds in this warm light
Have burst out laughing into leaves!
And shall a day like this be gone
Before I seek the wood that holds
The richest music known?

Too many times have nightingales
Wasted their passion on my sleep,
And brought repentance soon;
But this one night I'll seek the woods,
The Nightingale and Moon.
