Spring Song of the Birds

Worschippe ye that loveris bene this May,

For of your blisse the Kalendis are begonne,

And sing with us, Away, Winter, away!

Cum, Somer, cum, the suete sesoún and sonne!

Awake for schame! that have your hevynnis wonne,

And amorously lift up your hedis all,

Thank Lufe that list you to his merci call!

— King James I of Scotland
