The student asked the girl to dance, but she did not want to dance with him because he did not a have a red rose. There was music playing, and the student wants the girl to dance in his arms.
The Nightingale hears the boy cry and goes to talk to him. The boy tells the bird what happened and wants to get the girl the rose
Other animals approach the boy and ask why he is crying. The lizard thinks this is ridiculous, but the nightingale understands why the boy is really sad
The Nightingale goes to the rose tree for the student. The bird said I will sing you a song if you give me a rose. The tree said my roses are only white. The tree tells the Nightingale to make music out of moonlight and stain it with your own blood.
The Nightingale was willing to die to get the student his rose, but the oak tree felt bad for the bird. The nightingale pressed his heart against the thorn and than she began to sing as the moon shined
