The earliest surviving secular song in the English language, from the 13th century.

lyrics

Mirie it is while sumer y-last
With fugheles son
Oc nu neheth windes blast
And weder strong.
Ei, ei! What this nicht is long
And ich with wel michel wrong
Soregh and murne and fast.

Mirie - merry
y-last - lasts
fugheles - birds
son - sound, song
Oc - but
nu - now
neheth - neareth, draws closer
weder strong - fierce weather
What... long - Oh but how long
ich - I
wel michel - "well mickle," very much
Soregh - sorrow, grieve
murne - mourn
