Friday Poetry: Anon

Happy Friday!

I will be honest I have spent most of today convinced it is Saturday so it is lucky I remembered it was Friday otherwise I would have forgotten to do a poetry post.

My chosen poem is a medieval poem written in Middle English but sadly we do not know the author.

Sumer is i-cumen in 

Sumer is i-cumen in,
Loude sing cuckow!
Groweth seed and bloweth meed
And spryngeth the wode now. 
Syng cuckow!
Ewe bleteth after lamb,
Loweth after calve cow;
Bullock sterteth, bukke farteth, -
Myrie syng cuckow!
Cuckow! Cuckow!
Wel syngest thou cuckow:
Ne swik thou nevere now!
Syng cuckow, now, syng cuckow!
Syng cuckow, syng cuckow, now!


Happy Reading
