Thursday extracts: Midsummer

Sumer is ycomen in,
Loude sing cuckou!
Groweth seed and bloweth meed,
And springth the wode anow.
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!

Anon. Middle English

Bright Solstice Blessings to one and all!

Nice indeed, especially 'Bulloc sterteth, bucke verteth'!
Now I must look them up to discover their meaning.

Aha - and now I know.

According to the source I got it from - it's snorting and farting!
