Listen to the Nightingale’s Song
How often in the Bahá’í Writings do we read references to the song of the nightingale? Yet how many of us have ever heard this bird? I thought I’d start with it, so you would know what it sounds like and can imagine it, in the Garden of Ridvan.
Thus hath the Nightingale sung with sweet melody upon the celestial bough, in praise of its Lord, the All-Merciful. Well is it with them that hearken. (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 70)
