A Child's Own Book of Verse II by  Ada M. Skinner


 

 

HARK! HARK! THE LARK

[75]

Hark! hark! the lark at heaven's gate sings,

And Phoebus 'gins arise

His steeds to water at those springs

On chaliced flowers that lies;

And winking Mary-buds begin to ope their golden eyes;

With everything that pretty is, my lady sweet, arise;

Arise, arise.

—WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE.
