… The early village cock
Hath twice done salutation to the morn.
        Shakespeare.—King Richard III., Act V. Scene 3. (Ratcliff to Richard.)
Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Cry, Cock-a-doodle-do.
        Shakespeare.—Tempest, Act I. Scene 2.
        A Song (Ariel.)
Thy boastful mirth let jealous rivals spill,
Insult thy crest, and glossy pinions tear,
And ever in thy dreams the ruthless fox appear.
        Beattie.—The Minstrel, Book I. Stanza 36.
That house doth every day more wretched grow,
Where the Hen louder than the Cock doth crow.
        French Proverb.—(Howell’s Letters, Book I. Section IV. Stanza 9.)
