March borrowed from April
Three days and they were ill
The first o’ them was win’ and weet
The next o’ them was snow and sleet
The third o’ them was sic a freeze as garred the birds stick to the trees.
The borrowing days have well maintained their tradition. It is remarkable how often these old weather traditions which are the outcome of observation on the part of our forefathers are still applicable to the seasons to which they refer.
(apparently the rhyme is a traditional one from the North of Scotland, there is some interesting stuff on other Scottish rhymes about the weather here.)
