Book Of Parables - Bulbul's Song
BULBUL'S song, through night hours cold,
by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Rose to Allah's throne on high;
To reward her melody,
Giveth he a cage of gold.
Such a cage are limbs of men,--
Though at first she feels confin'd,
Yet when all she brings to mind,
Straight the spirit sings again.
