Sumer is icumen in
Write boldly, cuckoo
Poems grow and stories bloom
And our words spring forth anew
The poet bleats after her verse
The novelist lows after her plot
The memoirist prances; the readers fart
Merrily write, cuckoo!
You write well, cuckoo
Never be quiet now, ever!
Write, cuckoo, now; write, cuckoo!
Write, cuckoo; write, cuckoo, now!
