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’estÚ 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 proprietÚ au Quinson, qui crie
ordinairement fuy fuy, quand le froid est Ó la porte,
Becquefig ou Becquefique, est ainsi nommee, pource
qu’elle aime & mange les figues.
