Background Heading Cock Crow at Dawn - Heading

Awaken the morning you loud crowing cock,

Pierce the night’s silence ahead of the clock.

    Throw your voice soaring across the pale sky,

    Dispatching night’s gloom with a hearty goodbye.

 

You embrace early morning’s gold halcyon rays

And stretch forth your neck and proclaim this bright day.

    Your clarion call heralds a magnificent dawn,

    As you hail with true gladness the arrival of morn.
