Nightingale Me

The small brown beautiful bird
of United Kingdom
is a songbird with a lovely voice
sings during day and night
both males and females
sing day in and day out

But the male bird
sexy and lonely
goes out to the wilderness
to seek a spouse
a mate for his lusty night

he is a male only
come darling I am lonely
waiting for thee

No female has the strength and verve to fly
in the darkness
the lonely one continues singing sweetly
come darling to me

Like many humans
wanting love
to make most of life
they also sing loud
in the mid of night

perhaps the one they yearn for
may come
ere the rising sun
and lucky as man could be
as his rises
she comes

That is all about what happens
when one sings loud and clear
in the far distance
seeking womanly assistance

man, or male bird teach one another
‘tis the Nightingale
here she comes
now don't bother
we are not going to be lonely
Oh brother

I have all night been singing
She comes about to be love gathering
