I said to the sky-poised Lark :
"Hark-hark!

Thy note is more loud and free
Because there lies safe for thee

A little nest on the ground."

Shall, list'ning, in mid-air suspend their wings. d. POPE-Pastorals. Winter. L. 53.

e. ADELAIDE PROCTER-The Flood of

O happy skylark springing

Up to the broad, blue sky, Too fearless in thy winging, Too gladsome in thy singing, Thou also soon shalt lie

Where no sweet notes are ringing.

SHELLEY-To a Skylark.

Up springs the lark,

Shrill-voiced, and loud, the messenger of

Ere yet the shadows fly, he mounted sings Amid the dawning clouds, and from their

haunts

Calls up the tuneful nations.
