Some say that ever against that Season...

Language: English

Some say that ever against that Season comes
Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated,
The Bird of Dawning singeth all night long:
And then, they say, no Spirit dares stir abroad;
The nights are wholesome; then no Planets strike,
No Fairy [takes]1, nor witch hath power to charm,
So hallow'd and so gracious is the time.

On dit qu’aux approches de la saison

Language: French (Français) after the English

On dit qu’aux approches de la saison
où l’on célèbre la naissance de notre Sauveur,
l’oiseau de l’aube chante toute la nuit,
et alors, dit-on, aucun esprit n’ose s’aventurer dehors.
Les nuits sont saines ; alors pas d’étoile qui frappe,
pas de fée qui jette des sorts, pas de sorcière qui ait le pouvoir de charmer,
tant cette époque est sanctifiée et pleine de grâce !
