COCKS
[ Also see Birds Hens ]

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)

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.
      - John Milton, L'Allegro

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.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at I, i)

Hark, hark! I hear
  The strain of strutting chanticleer
    Cry cock-a-diddle-dowe.
      - William Shakespeare, 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.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Ratcliffe at V, iii)
