Well, we’ve had a late season snow, but why not look forward to the weekend?

Sumer is icumen in,
Loude sing cuckou!
Groweth seed and bloweth meed,
And springth the wode now.
Sing cuckou!

Ewe bleteth after lamb,
Loweth after calve cow,
Bulloc sterteth, bucke verteth,
Merye sing cuckou!
Cuckou, cuckou,
Wel singest thou cuckou:
Ne swik thou never now

Yes, that’s English all right. And yes, “bucke verteth” really does mean “the buck farts”–how else would we know it’s summer?

And while we’re at it, let’s listen to the song–it’s a round, so you can join in wherever you like.
