Spring has Sprung

The Original and Well-Known Rhyme by Anonymous

The spring is sprung, the grass is riz.

I wonder where the boidie is.

They say the boidie’s on the wing.

But that’s absoid. The wing is on the bird.


Translation of the rhyme into Standard English

Springtime has arrived and the grass has started to grow once more.

I wonder where the birds are nesting.

They say the birds are “on the wing” (flying).

But that’s absurd. It’s the other way round; the wings are on the birds.
