Siegfried Sassoon (1886–1967).  The Old Huntsman and Other Poems.  1918.

60. Daybreak in a Garden


I HEARD the farm cocks crowing, loud, and faint, and thin, 
When hooded night was going and one clear planet winked: 
I heard shrill notes begin down the spired wood distinct, 
When cloudy shoals were chinked and gilt with fires of day. 
  White-misted was the weald; the lawns were silver-grey;         5
  The lark his lonely field for heaven had forsaken; 
  And the wind upon its way whispered the boughs of may, 
  And touched the nodding peony-flowers to bid them waken.
