Yver, vous n’estes qu’un villain

Yver, vous n’estes qu’un villain!
Esté est plaisant et gentil
en témoing de may et d’avril
qui l’accompaignent soir et main.
Esté revet champs bois et fleurs
de salivrée de verdure
et de maintes autres couleurs,
par l’ordonnance de nature.
Mais vous, Yver, trop estes plein
de nége, vent, pluye et grézil.
On vous deust banir en éxil.
Sans point flater je parle plein:
Yver, vous n’estes qu’un villain!


Winter, you’re nothing but a villain

Winter, you’re nothing but a villain!
Summer is pleasant and nice,
joined to May and April,
who go hand in hand.
Summer dreams of fields, woods, and flowers,
covered with green
and many other colors,
by nature’s command.
But you, Winter, are too full
of snow, wind, rain, and hail.
You should be banished!
Without exaggerating, I speak plainly
Winter, you’re nothing but a villain!
