Sonnet 79: The Nightingale And The Lark - Poem by David Wood

The Nightingale her sweet music does bring
Beautiful melodies to the woodland floor,
On a clear still day you can hear her sing
Beautiful songs unlocking nature’s door.

Even sparrow’s hedgehogs and squirrels hark
At such a delicate sound in the air
Even when a new song is sung by the Lark
They compete making a formidable pair.

The Lark rising in the early morning
Found singing his heart out come rain or shine,
While other woodland birds wake up yawning
No sweeter sound can make the day so fine.

The Nightingale and Lark sing songs of love
Blessing all nature with songs from above.

    It is a pleasure listening to the songs of nature! Reading about them enables one to have a virtual experience of such sounds! This what I get by reading this poem! ! (Report) Reply

    poetry and nature are broad terms encompassing almost a world in their wide expanse...here the narrow focus is on nightingale and lark as a part of nature...birds always have been the cynosure of attention of the bards of the world who have been immortalizing them in their verses(in all the worldly terms, of course not in the blasphemous sense!) , one poem i read on the birds which is deleted unfortunately by the poet.this poem is also the evidence that you are gifted with the sonnet form! ! !
