Cock
 
Good-morrow to thy sable beak,
And glossy plumage, dark and sleek,
Thy crimson moon and azure eye,
Cock of the heath, so wildly shy!
        Joanna Baillie—The Black Cock. St. 1.
  1
While the cock with lively din
Scatters the rear of darkness thin,
And to the stack or the barn door
Stoutly struts his dames before.
        MiltonL’Allegro.
  2
The cock, that is the trumpet to the morn,
Doth with his lofty and shrill-sounding throat
Awake the god of day.
        Hamlet. Act I. Sc. 1. L. 150.
  3
          The early village cock
Hath twice done salutation to the morn.
        Richard III. Act V. Sc. 3. L. 209.
  4
Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Cry, cock-a-diddle-dow.
        Tempest. Act I. Sc. 2. L. 384.
