FAIRYTALE MEME:6 creatures - [1/6] Nightingale from The Nightingale   “And the nightingale sang so sweetly that tears came into the Emperor’s eyes and rolled down his cheeks. Then the nightingale sang still more sweetly, and it was the Emperor’s heart that melted. The Emperor was so touched that he wanted his own golden slipper hung round the nightingale’s neck, but the nightingale declined it with thanks. He had already been amply rewarded."I have seen tears in the Emperor’s eyes," he said. "Nothing could surpass that. An Emperor’s tears are strangely powerful. I have my reward." And he sang again, gloriously.”
