Vol. I. Early Poetry: Chaucer to Donne
Songs from Plays: A Morning Song for Imogen (from Cymbeline)
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
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        5
  To ope their golden eyes:
With every thing that pretty is,
  My lady sweet, arise:
    Arise, arise.
