The standing corn is green
Sedulius Scottus (c. mid-9th century)
translated by Helen Waddell (1889-1965)

The standing corn is green, the wild in flower,
The vines are swelling, 'tis the sweet o' the year,
Bright-winged the birds, and heaven shrill with
song,
And laughing sea and earth and every star.

But with it all, there's never a drink for me,
No wine, nor mead, nor even a drop of beer.
Ah, how hath failed that substance manifold,
Born of the kind earth and the dewy air!

I am a writer, I, a musician, Orpheus the second, *
And the ox that treads out the corn, and your
well-wisher I,
I am your champion armed with the weapons of wisdom and logic,
Muse, tell my lord bishop and father his servant is dry.


from Medieval Latin Lyrics
