Good-morrow to thy sable beak,
And glossy plumage, dark and sleek,
Thy crimson moon and azure eye,
Cock of the heath, so wildly shy!
        Joanna Baillie—The Black Cock. St. 1.
While the cock with lively din
Scatters the rear of darkness thin,
And to the stack or the barn door
Stoutly struts his dames before.
The cock, that is the trumpet to the morn,
Doth with his lofty and shrill-sounding throat
Awake the god of day.
        Hamlet. Act I. Sc. 1. L. 150.
          The early village cock
Hath twice done salutation to the morn.
        Richard III. Act V. Sc. 3. L. 209.
Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Cry, cock-a-diddle-dow.
        Tempest. Act I. Sc. 2. L. 384.
