1An old man in a lodge within a park;
2 The chamber walls depicted all around
3 With portraitures of huntsman, hawk, and hound,
4 And the hurt deer. He listeneth to the lark,
5Whose song comes with the sunshine through the dark
6 Of painted glass in leaden lattice bound;
7 He listeneth and he laugheth at the sound,
9He is the poet of the dawn, who wrote
11 Made beautiful with song; and as I read
12I hear the crowing cock, I hear the note
14 Rise odors of ploughed field or flowery mead.
