Animal Kingdom 35 – Nightingale: Sweetness


Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the nightingale.

Nightingale: Sweetness

Nightingale, my nightingale,
Your sweetness-melody of rhapsody
Divinely waters man’s consciousness-tree.
You are your divinity’s voice,
You are our soulful admiration’s choice.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
