Hi Susan - I'd stronly recommend "Satakieli" by Pekka Kostiainen.  It's about a nightingale and is GORGEOUS.  Challenging but not unatainable.  I can lend you the scores if you're interested (and send you an mp3 from a concert).  It's published by Sulasol and has also been recorded by Philomela.  The translation is:
In the distance a silver bird sings
the song of immortal youth.
Open the doors
thaw your frozen heart
your time begins now.
 
Good luck!
