James and Mary Ford, eds.  Every Day in the Year.  1902.
 
November 2
To Jenny Lind
By Edmund Gosse (1849–1928)
 
          A famous Swedish singer who died on Nov. 2, 1887.

THEY call thee Nightingale, who know thee not!
  But Philomel’s light voice within her tree
Betrays an instinct of her transient lot;
  As flowers to gems are, so are birds to thee.
