The Crucifixion

From The Speckled Book, 12th Century ~ Translated by Howard Mumford Jones

At the cry of the first bird
The began to crucify Thee, O Swan!
Never shall lament cease because of that.
It was like the parting of day from night.
Ah, sore was the suffering borne
By the body of Mary's Son,
But sorer still to Him was the grief
Which for His sake
Came upon His Mother.
