COCK-CROW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Bell-man of night, if I about shall go
Last Line: A sin, then fall to weeping when 'tis done.
Subject(s): Peter, Saint (C. 64 A.d.)


Bell-man of Night, if I about shall go
For to denie my Master, do thou crow.
Thou stop'st s. Peter in the midst of sin;
Stay me, by crowing, ere I do begin;
Better it is, premonish'd, for to shun
A sin, then fall to weeping when 'tis done.
