William Stanley Braithwaite, ed.  The Book of Elizabethan Verse.  1907.
 
Hark, Hark! the Lark
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
From “Cymbeline,” Act II. Scene 3

HARK, hark! the lark at heaven’s gate sings,
  And Phœbus ’gins arise,
His steeds to water at those springs
  On chaliced flowers that lies;
And winking Mary-buds begin        5
  To ope their golden eyes:
With everything that pretty bin, 1
  My lady sweet, arise:
    Arise, arise.
 
Note 1. Bin: is. [back]
