To a Skylark
By Margery Berridge Grey
WHEN with crimson tints and rare
Phoebus paints the world so fair,
Then, thou morning minstrel, rise;
Flood with melody the skies!
When the dawn’s gates ope again,        5
Swell thy tuneful throat! oh! then
Serenade the silver stars,
Peeping through the morn’s pale bars.
When the azure mists of night
Flee before the morning light,        10
Pour forth harmony above,
And softly wake my sleeping love!
