:

When shepherds pipe on oaten straws,
And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks :
When turtles treail, and rooks and daws;

And maidens bleach their summer smocks;
The cuckow then on every tree
Mocks married men; for thus sings he,
Cuckow !

Cuckow ! cuckow ! 0 word of fear,
Unpleasing to a married ear!

W I N T E R.
When isicles hang by the wall,

And Dick the shepherd blows his naii;
And Tom bears logs into the hall,

And milk comes frozen home in pail;
When blood is nipt, and ways be foul,
Then nightly sings the staring owl
Tu-whit! to-whoo!

A merry note,
While greasy Jone doth keel the pot.

[ocr errors]

When all aloud the wind doth blow,

And coughing drowns the Parson's faw;
And birds fit brooding in the snow,

And Marian's nose looks red and raw;
When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl,
Then nightly fings the staring owl
Tu-whit! to-whoo!

A merry note,
While greasy Jone doth keel the pot.

Arm. The words of Mercury
Are harsh after the songs of Apollo :
You, that way; we, this way.

(Exeunt omnes.
