LII. "Pack, clouds, away, and welcome day"
 
PACK, clouds, away, and welcome day, 
  With night we banish sorrow; 
Sweet air blow soft, mount larks aloft 
  To give my Love good-morrow! 
Wings from the wind to please her mind         5
  Notes from the lark I'll borrow; 
Bird, prune thy wing, nightingale sing, 
  To give my Love good-morrow; 
      To give my Love good-morrow 
      Notes from them both I'll borrow.  10
  
Wake from thy nest, robin-red-breast, 
  Sing, birds, in every furrow; 
And from each hill, let music shrill 
  Give my fair Love good-morrow! 
Blackbird and thrush in every bush,  15
  Stare, linnet, and cock-sparrow! 
You pretty elves, amongst yourselves 
  Sing my fair Love good-morrow; 
      To give my Love good-morrow 
      Sing, birds, in every furrow!  20
