CUCKOO SONG

      Sing, cuccu, nu! Sing, cuccu!
    Sing, cuccu! Sing, cuccu, nu!

  Sumer is icumen in;
    Lhud{.e} sing, cuccu!
Groweth sed, and bloweth med,
    And springth the wud{.e} nu.
      Sing, cuccu!

  Aw{.e} bleteth after lomb,
    Lhouth after calv{.e} cu;
Bulluc sterteth, buck{.e} verteth;
    Muri{.e} sing, cuccu!

      Cuccu! cuccu!
    Wel sing{.e}s thu, cuccu;
    Ne swik thu naver nu.
