AUTHOR:William Holmes McGuffey (1800–73)
QUOTATION:The lark is up to meet the sun,
The bee is on the wing;
The ant its la-bor has be-gun,
The woods with music ring.
Shall birds, and bees, and ants, be wise,
While I my mo-ments waste?
O let me with the morn-ing rise,
And to my du-ty haste.
ATTRIBUTION:WILLIAM HOLMES MCGUFFEY, “The lark is up to meet the sun,” McGuffey’s Eclectic Primer, newly rev., lesson 81, p. 54 (1849).
