NIGHTINGALE NIGHTINGALE is “the bird that sings by night,” from two Anglo-
Saxon words, niht, or night, and gale, or singer—although, in reality, the
nightingale sings its song at all hours of the day and night during the spring
mating -season. The male is the rapturous musician, whose melodies have

And as, despite the bends in the lane — distinctly treacherous bends, Victoria
realized, as they followed in pursuit — he was pressing his foot and his
accelerator and getting all the speed he could out of a highly powerful car there

W. B. Yeats Bed-ridden, voice cracked with age and slurred with arterial

was at Woolley Grange, outside of Maidenhead, the other side of Maidenhead . . .

mimetic triple rhyme undulate across the two lines Withal the nightingale lovingly
Calls from the misty vale to me — for which there is no phonetic match in the
original. Again, in 'The Bride of Corinth', where I was adapting the Aytoun-Martin
