OLD RHYME

When the wind is in the east,
  Then the fishes bite the least;
    When the wind is in the west,
      Then the fishes bite the best;
        When the wind is in the north,
          Then the fishes do come forth;
            When the wind is in the south,
              It blows the bait in the fish's mouth.
      - in J.O. Halliwell's "Popular Rhymes"
        [Fish : Wind]

A rainbow in the morning
  Is the Shepherd's warning;
    But a rainbow at night
      Is the Shepherd's delight.
      - Old Weather Rhyme [Rainbows]

If woolly fleeces spread the heavenly way
  No rain, be sure, disturbs the summer's day.
      - Old Weather Rhyme [Clouds]

When clouds appear like rocks and towers,
  The earth's refreshed by frequent showers.
      - Old Weather Rhyme [Clouds]
