Of all the poetry I was required to memorize in school, this short bit from the Prologue of the Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer is only thing I still remember. I always think of it when April comes especially when rain is falling. You can hear the Middle English being read here and read a translation into contemporary English here.

How interesting to hear the prologue spoken, Susan, and to hear the German influence. Would you mind telling me where you found this clip?

I did a google search for "Chaucer prologue audio". Several choices came up and I chose this one because it was easiest to access.
