The Lark Now Leaves His Watery Nest

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

This poem by Sir William Davenant was written in the mid 1600s. It talks of a lark calling a lover awake.

The lark now leaves his watery nest,
And climbing, shakes his dewy wings;
He takes this window for the east,
And to implore your light, he sings,
Awake, awake, the morn will never rise,
Till she can dress her beauty at your eyes.

The merchant bows unto the seaman's star,
The ploughman from the sun his season takes;
But still the lover wonders what they are,
Who look for day before his mistress wakes.
Awake, awake, break through your veils of lawn,
Then draw your curtains, and begin the dawn.

--Sir William Davenant
