    A pound of March dust ¶ Is worth a sack of gold. ¶ Soft April showers ¶ Bring forth May flowers.

    A pound of March dust
    Is worth a sack of gold.
    Soft April showers
    Bring forth May flowers.
    Evening grey and morning red
    Makes the sailor shake his head.
    Evening red and morning grey
    Is a sure sign of a good day.
    A rainbow in the morning
    Is the sailors [sic] warning.
    A rainbow at noon
    Fair weather soon.
    A rainbow at night
    Is the sailors [sic] delight.
    A lack of May and a warm June
    Makes the farmer whistle a merry tune.
