Well! If the Bard was weather-wise, who made
The grand old ballad of Sir Patrick Spence,
Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.
It's this crazy weather we've been having:
Falling forward one minute, lying down the next
...
Lord, when the wise men came from far,
Led to thy cradle by a star,
...
This is the weather the cuckoo likes,
And so do I;
When showers betumble the chestnut spikes,
And nestlings fly:
This is the weather the shepherd shuns,
And so do I;
When beeches drip in browns and duns,
And thresh, and ply;
O suns and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
...
The weather is like the government, always in the wrong.
Turn on the prudent ant thy heedful eyes,
Observe her labours, sluggard, and be wise.
Three wise men of Gotham
Went to sea in a bowl;
If the bowl had been stronger,
My story would have been longer.
