Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

52. Morning-Land


OLD English songs, you bring to me 
A simple sweetness somewhat kin 
To birds that through the mystery 
Of earliest morn make tuneful din, 
While hamlet steeples sleepily         5
At cock-crow chime out three and four, 
Till maids get up betime and go 
With faces like the red sun low 
Clattering about the dairy floor.
