Morning
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 
(See full text.)

THIS castle hath a pleasant seat; the air
Nimbly and sweetly recommends itself
Unto our gentle senses.
                    This guest of summer,
The temple-haunting martlet, does approve,
By his lov’d mansionry, that the heaven’s breath        5
Smells wooingly here: no jutty, frieze, buttress,
Nor coigne of vantage, but this bird hath made
His pendent bed, and procreant cradle: Where they
Most breed and haunt, I have observ’d the air
Is delicate.        10
