It may not make sense to you, but that's because of your limited knowledge
of Imagism. Pound is obviously a genius when it comes to such poetry. If
not, how could he translate his poems to such a difficult text?

of a middle-english summer poem. It makes perfect sense if you can get
through some of the middle english phrases. Here is the original poem and a
translation.

Text:
1.
Sumer is icumen in,
Lhude sing, cuccu!
Groweth sed and bloweth med
And springth the wude nu.
Sing, cuccu!

2.
Awe bleteth after lomb,
Lhouth after calve cu
Bulloc sterteth, bucke ferteth.
Murie sing, cuccu!
Cuccu, cuccu,
Wel singes thu, cuccu.
Ne swik thu naver nu!

Sing cuccu nu, sing cuccu!
Sing cuccu nu, sing cuccu!


Translation:


Spring has come in
Loudly sing, cuckoo!
Grows the seed and blooms the meadow
And the woods springs now
Sing, cuckoo! 5

The ewe bleats after the lamb
The calf lows after the cow
The bull leaps, the buck leaps, twisting.
Merrily sing, cuckoo!
Cuckoo, cuckoo, 10
Well sing you, cuckoo.
Nor cease you ever now!

Sing cuckoo now, sing cuckoo!
Sing cuckoo now, sing cuckoo!
