Aubade


Early morning light from mi casa's veranda!


HARK! hark! the lark at heaven's gate sings,
   And Phoebus 'gins arise,
His steeds to water at those springs
   On chaliced flowers that lies;
And winking Mary-buds begin
   To ope their golden eyes:
With everything that pretty bin,
   My lady sweet, arise!
   Arise, arise! 

                                Wm. Shakespeare

  2. Nothing like beauty and a little education early in the morning. In a sense, you have made your own aubade to this sleepy woman. I can say that now that I know that, strictly speaking, "an aubade is a song from a door or window to a sleeping woman." (Thanks, Wikipedia). And thanks, Kate. I love the middle English sound of this aubade of Shakespeare's.

    I'm going to make some coffee now and think up some more ways to use my new word of the day.

  10. What a view! I think I'd never leave home. ;)

    PS: If there's something in Toronto that you'd like to see photographed, let me know. It would give me a reason to get out a bit more. :)
