Entertainment / Literature / Dawn Song: (also called an aubade) A genre of poetry common to Europe in which the poem is about the dawn or coming of dawn, or it is a piece of music meant to be sung or played outdoors at dawn. Examples include Browning's 'The year's at the spring / And day's at the morn' from Pippa Passes or Shakespeare's 'Hark! Hark! The lark.' Some poems, such as John Donne's 'Busy old sun' share traits with the dawn song, and Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde also contains an example inside its larger narrative.
