Christina Georgina Rossetti

5 December 1803 - 29 December 1870 / London

Kookoorookoo! Kookoorookoo!

‘Kookoorookoo! kookoorookoo!’
Crows the cock before the morn;
‘Kikirikee! kikirikee!’
Roses in the east are born.
‘Kookoorookoo! kookoorookoo!’
Early birds begin their singing;
‘Kikirikee! kikirikee!’
The day, the day, the day is springing.
