5 Cocks Quotes
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.

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!

I have heard
The cock, that is the trumpet to the morn,
Doth with his lofty and shrill-sounding throat
Awake the god of the day, and at his warning,
Whether in sea or fire, in earth or air,
Th' extravagant and erring spirit hies
To his confine; and of the truth herein
This present object made probation.

Hark, hark! I hear
The strain of strutting chanticleer
Quotes , Source: The Tempest (Ariel at I, ii)
The early village cock
Hath twice done salutation to the morn:
Your friends are up and buckle on their armor.
