Nature Poem

Summer is icumen in

Anon (13th century)


Sumer is icumin in -

Lhude sing, cuccu!

Groweth sed and bloweth med

And springth the wude nu.

Sing, cuccu!


Awe bleteth after lomb,

Lhouth after calve cu,

Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth.

Murie sing, cuccu!

Cuccu, cuccu,

Wel singes thu, cuccu!

Ne swik thu naver nu!


Sing, cuccu, nu! Sing cuccu!

Sing cuccu! Sing, cuccu, nu!



Autumn, 1573 - Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Autumn, Guiseppe Arcimboldo, 1573
