"Nightingale Woman" was a poem by Tarbolde, written in 1996 on the Canopus Planet. It was said to be one of the most passionate love sonnets of its time.

An excerpt of the sonnet, found on page 387, read:

My love has wings,
slender, feathered things
with grace in upswept curve
and tapered tip

Gary Mitchell quoted this poem as a result of his increased mental capacity from being in contact with the galactic barrier. (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

The words to the poem were written by Gene Roddenberry back when he was an aviator, as a love poem from a pilot to his airplane. (Star Trek Chronology; Star Trek Encyclopedia) Despite this, the script of "Where No Man Has Gone Before" refers to the poem with a very slight difference, as "The Nightingale Woman".
The first line of the poem, "My love has wings" was depicted underneath a picture of Rita Hayworth on a calendar seen in DS9: "Little Green Men".
