The Lark Burying Her Father
The Lark (according to an ancient legend) was created before the earth
itself, and when her father died, as there was no earth, she could
find no place of burial for him. She let him lie uninterred for five
days, and on the sixth day, not knowing what else to do, she buried
him in her own head. Hence she obtained her crest, which is popularly
said to be her father's grave-hillock.
