“I cannot sing unless I’m free and if I cannot sing, I die,” he said. The Princess gave a great sob. “Then take your freedom,” she said, “I shut you in a golden cage because I loved you and wanted to have you all to myself. But I never knew it would kill you. Go. Fly away among the trees that are round the lake and fly over the green rice-fields. I love you enough to let you be happy in your own way.” She threw open the window and gently placed the little bird on the sill. He shook himself a little.

Yes, the bird did return to the princess after being set free by her. The nightingale kept its promise of returning to the princess. When it came back after flying over the world, it sat on September’s shoulder and ate out of her hand and sang to her the beautiful songs he had learned while he was flying up and down the fair places of the world.
