Weather Lore

windmill

When ’ t winds in ‘t east,

Cauld and snaw comes ‘t neist;

When ‘t winds in ‘t west,

It suits ‘t farmer best

When ‘t winds in ‘t north,

We ha’ to sup het scalding broth:

When ‘t winds in ‘t south,

It’s muck up to ‘ t mouth

—————————————————————————————————————————————— 

The wind of the south will be productive of heat and fertility

The wind of the west of milk and fish

The wind of the north of cold and storm

The wind from the east of fruit on the trees.
