Summer

Cuckoo song

Summer is icumen in,
Lhude sing cuccu !
Groweth sed, and bloweth med,
And springeth the winde nu—
Sing cuccu !

Awe bleteth after lamb,
Lhouth after calve cu;
Bulluc sterteth, bucke verteth,
Murie sing cuccu !

Cuccu, cuccu, well singes thu cuccu;
Ne swike thu naver bu;
Sing cuccu, nu, sing cuccu,
Sing cuccu, sing cuccu, nu !
