Les quatre saisons de l’annee.

XCVI.

Au froid hyver la Berce nous convie,
Et au printemps l’arondelle qui crie:
Mais le coquu fait l’esté apparoistre:
Le becquefig fait l’automne congnoistre.

Commentaires.

J’estime qu’Alciat n’a eu autre but en ceste epigram-
me, que de nous enseigner quels oiseaux, par leur
venue, nous remarquent les quatre saisons de l’annee.
La Berce, je l’ay veu escrite par deux ee Beree, Quel-
ques uns baillent ceste proprieté au Quinson, qui crie
ordinairement fuy fuy, quand le froid est à la porte,
Becquefig ou Becquefique, est ainsi nommee, pource
qu’elle aime & mange les figues.

    In quatuor tempora anni.

    The four seasons

    Advenisse hyemem fringilla renuntiat ales.
    Ad nos vere novo garrula hirundo redit.
    Indicat aestatem sese expectare cuculus.
    Autumno est tantum cernere ficedulas.

    The chaffinch is the bird that announces winter has come. When spring is new, the twittering swallow returns to us. The cuckoo lets us know that it sees summer on the way. Only in autumn can one see flycatchers.
