Juvenile Spring - Shakespeare
The cuckoos then, on every single Christmas trees, mocked and mocked men, because that's how he sings:'Cuckoo! cuckoos, cuckoo!' O Fearful words, unpleasant for a man's husband's ear. If herders whistle on straw, and happy larches are ploughman' s watches, if tortoises kick, and towers and jackdaws, and virgins whiten their sundresses, the look then, on every Christmas trees, mocked men, for so he sings: "Cuckoo!
cuckoos, cuckoo!' O Fearful words, unpleasant for a man's husband's ear. At the end of Love's Labour's Labour's Lots, this is followed by an anthem Winter. Shakespeare, William. Love's Labour's loss.
"Spring" by William Shakespeare. Shenandoah.
Draw the fields with joy, the puckoo, then, on every pole, mocked men mocked; for so he is singing, puckoo; puckuckoo, cuckoo: O Fearful Words, unpleasant for a husband's ears! If herders whistle on straw, and happy larches are ploughman' s watches, if tortoises kick, and towers and jackdaws, and girls whiten their sommer' dresses, the look then, on every wood, mocked husband and wife; for so he chants, lookaway; lookaway, lookaway:
O Fearful Words, unpleasant for a husband's ears! Shakespeare's precise date of birth is not known, but we have enough historic proof to know that he was borne in April. Schakespeare was borne in Stratford-upon-Avon in 1564 and began his career at the theatre in 1594 as a member of the Lord Chamberlain's Men Player Corporation.
Though there have been several plot claims since his passing that call into doubt the copyright of his works, it is generally assumed that Shakespeare is the authentic writer of every piece and poetry attributed to him. Shakespeare's house in Stratford-upon-Avon. We can also recognize the funny play-on-words that Shakespeare uses.
This is Shakespeare's evil eye for humour, which can be seen in many of his dramas. He is playing with the tone of the puckoo in this poem: It is Shakespeare's suggestion that this bird's reputation is like the term "cuckold", which is actually descended from the caudal species, because females have a tendency to lay their balls in other bird's coop.
It' a pejorative concept because it relates to a man who normally does not know that he is matrimonial. Maybe Eliot repeated this spring thing when he wrote: "April is the cruellest month."
