Vol. II. The Seventeenth Century: Ben Jonson to Dryden
To the Lark
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
GOOD speed, for I this day
Betimes my matins say,
    Because I do
    Begin to woo,
    Sweet singing Lark,        5
    Be thou the clerk,
    And know thy when
    To say Amen.
    And if I prove
    Blest in my love,        10
    Then thou shalt be
    High Priest to me,
    At my return
    To incense burn,
And so to solemnise        15
Love’s and my sacrifice.
