Holograph fair copy signed, one page, folio (thin blue paper), n.p., n.d. 30 lines of verse (in 5 stanzas), titled "The Nightingale, & the unsatisfied heart," which begin: "When in a Mayday hush / Chanteth the thistle thrush / The harp o' the heart makes answer with murmurous stirs / If robin redbreast sing / We chide the tardy spring / And culvers when they coo are love's remembrancers // But thou in the trance of light / Stayest the night / An echo makes shut her lips with the utterance wise / And casts at our glad feet / In a wisp of fancies fleet / Life's fair life's unfullfulled [sic] prophecies. . . ." Ingelow has written "Song" on the verso of the sheet. Folds; some general toning; but good. (Item ID: 18706)
