by William Alexander Percy (1885 - 1942)

A little page's song
Language: English 
    (13th century)
God's lark at morning I would be!
I'd set my heart within a tree
Close to His bed and sing to Him
Right merrily
A sunrise hymn.

At night I'd be God's troubadour!
Beneath His starry walls I'd pour
Across the moat such roundelays
He'd love me sure -
And maybe praise!
