Summer has come, with its warm sunny days making us think of all sorts of nice things, such as holidays in the country, picnics and making parties.
When spring came, she found the earth cold and hard, but she soon changed all that, and by the time, summer arrives, the world is a very different place. It is a green world now, green leaves, flowers opening every where, green grass in the fields, green plants crowding in the hedges and green leaves on trees.
The days are long and the nights are short, for the sun gets up early and goes to bed late in sunny June. It is one of the best and brightest months in the year. Birds sing from sunrise till long after sunset.
As night falls, one after another the birds sing their song, and after a few last sleepy sounds, put their heads under their wings to rest for an hour or two before beginning again. They do not all sleep, however, when other birds are silent, come a soft cry, then, after a few moments, another, louder this time, and soon the nightingale is pouring out his wonderful song.
Not only at night does the nightingale sing. On almost every warm day in early June, the little brown bird sings away in the roads and woods, but, as all other birds are also singing at the same time, we do not notice his voice so much. It is at night, when he has the field all to himself, that we hear the nightingale at his best.
