Where did Pope Francis get the title for his new encyclical, Laudato Si?

From the 13th century song 'The Canticle of Creation!'

Here is the full text of 'Canticle of Creation':

Most high, all powerful, good Lord!
All praise is Yours, all glory, all honor, and all blessing.

To You, alone, Most High, do they belong.
No mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your name.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through all You have made
And first, my Lord, Brother Sun
who brings the day; and through whom You give us light.

How beautiful is he, how radiant in all his splendor!
Of You, Most High, he bears the likeness.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars;
in the heavens You have made them bright, and precious and fair.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air,
and fair and stormy all the weather's moods
by which You cherish all that Your have made.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through Sister Water;
so useful, humble, precious and pure.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through Brother Fire,
through whom You brighten up the night.
How beautiful is he, how cheerful, full of power and strength.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth,
who sustains us and governs us
and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through those who grant pardon for love of You;
through those who endure sickness and trial.

Happy are those who endure in peace,
by You, Most High, they will be crowned.

All praise be Yours, my Lord, through our sister Death,
from whose embrace no mortal can escape.
Woe to those who die in mortal sin!
Happy those she finds doing Your will.
A second death can do no harm.

Praise and bless my Lord, and give Him thanks,
and serve Him with great humility.
