GOODBYE TO THE NIGHTINGALE

I have never seen the Nightingale…she is hidden by the evening shade
but I still loved to listen to her nightly serenade.

I have never seen the Nightingale…I have searched but never found
still I love to listen to her singing…love the beauty of her sound.

I never knew Aretha Franklin…but I knew the joy her voice could bring…
and I’ve wondered… is this how she would sound…if the nightingale could sing?

I never knew Aretha Franklin…but in her music I’d rejoice…
and I like to think while she was here…the nightingale found her voice.

No, I never knew Aretha Franklin…but from now on when I hear a birdsong in the
Spring….
I’ll close my eyes and remember…how that nightingale could sing…
