    Of delightful sound,
    Better than all treasures
    That in books are found,
    Thy skilled to poet were, thou scorner of the ground!

Hark, hark, the lark at heaven's gate sings,
And Phoebus gins arise,
His steeds to water at those springs
On chaliced flowers that lies;
And winking Mary-buds begin
To ope their golden eyes.

Some say that ever 'gainst that season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,

No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm.
So hallowed and so gracious is that time.

And the lark soars.
