I don’t think hearken is correct. Correct spelling is harken.
Hi Carol, I’ve checked a few dictionaries and the word “hark” is an imperative form meaning “listen!” and “hearken” is a related archaic/literary form. If you put “harken” into the Cambridge online dictionary it says “Sorry! We didn’t find harken in English, but you might be interested in the results found in other dictionaries: harken in Dutch–English, harken in German–English”. Here is its entry for “hearken”: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/hearken.
