Aubade
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:
With everything that pretty bin,
   My lady sweet, arise!
   Arise, arise!

  13. I had so many days of "enforced" sunrises (aka: workdays) I seldom enjoy them now (also known as "sleeping in"). You've shown what I'm missing!
