Текст оригинала на английском языке
YE may hear now, in this rime, How every thing must have a time. Time is a thing that no man may resist; Time is transitory and irrevocable; Who sayeth the contrary, Time passeth as him list; Time must be taken in season covenable: Take Time when Time is, for Time is aye mutable; All thing hath time, who can for it provide; Bide for Time who will, for Time will no man bide. Time to be sad, and time to play and sport; Time to take rest by way of recreation; Time to study, and time to use comfort; Time of pleasure, and time of consolation: Thus Time hath his time of divers manner fashion: Time for to eat and drink for thy repast; Time to be liberal, and time to make no waste: Time to travail, and time for to rest; Time for to speak, and time to hold thy peace: Time would be used when Time is best; Time to begin, and time for to cease; And when time is, to put thyself in press, And when time is, to hold thyself aback: For time well spent can never have lack. The root─ùs take their sap in time of vere; In time of summer flowers fresh and green; In time of harvest men their corn─ù shere; In time of winter the north wind waxeth keen, So bitterly biting the flowers be not seen: The calends of Janus, with his frost─ùs hoar, That time is when people must live upon the store.
