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! Anon
